PALADINES PAREDES, Lenin Vladimir. The Eternal return: analysis of the temporal conception in the Dark series of Netflix. PAAKAT: rev. tecnol. soc. [online]. 2019, vol.9, n.16, pp.3-8. ISSN 2007-3607.


This work analyzes the conceptualization of the time treated in Dark TV series (Daran bo Odar, Jantje Friese, 2017), broadcasted by Netflix digital platform. The argument presents the conception of time as something cyclical, based on the idea of the eternal return, collected by Friedrich Nietzsche in The Gay Science (1882) and Thus spoke Zarathustra (1883). Unlike the philosophical idea, Dark states the real possibility of time functioning as an eternal loop, which produces the elimination of the classical conceptions of past, present and future, since the characters can move between these times and influence the facts that happen before or after. Through the chapters, the series bases this idea based on elements of science fiction such as: time travel, wormholes and human inventions aimed at changing and altering the course of events in a single timeline, to demonstrate how the actions of a person in different temporal states configure the reality in which we live.
