Abstract (type = abstract)
This dissertation reconsiders discretionary time as an objective measure of freedom through the concept of temporal autonomy, or the ability to control one’s time. The ability to control one’s time relates to the organization of the economy, state, and household with regards to the allocation of necessity. Capitalism dominates necessity through the manipulation of “necessary” labor-time that must be sold in order to survive in a market society, which I argue facilitates capitalism’s colonization of time for the purpose of generating profit and ensuring economic growth, rather than addressing human need or scarcity. If time is the ultimate scarce resource, then the distribution of time is a matter of justice. For this reason, I argue the fight for time as a political response to capitalism’s colonization of time remains an indispensible project that needs to be rethought in light of new historical conditions. Whereby the original fight for time fought to control and limit the time spent in production, I argue today’s fight for time must also address capitalism’s colonization beyond production through the commodification of time in general.
