Open peer commentary on the article “Systems Theory and Algorithmic Futures: Interview with Elena Esposito” by Elena Esposito, Katrin Sold & Bénédicte Zimmermann. Abstract: In this commentary I take up thoughts about the sociology of time and Luhmann’s theory to consider whether automated future option maximization can be extended with a social dimension.
