Systems theoretical analysis of retro
What is it about?
We live in a pop age gone loco for retro. Some observers even fear that we may "run out of past". This article offers another way of looking at the current retro trends. Maybe retro isn't a problem, but the solution to a problem?
Why is it important?
The mass media and scientific research seem to agree that retro is something 'bad', especially when it's nostalgic. This paper makes use of Bartleby's rejection technique: it "prefers not to" (use moral distinctions or think of retro as a disease). Instead, it observes the retro observers - called 'retrologists' - to then offer a functional analysis to overcome the subcomplexities of current retro observations.
