The description here proposed of the main aspects of Peter Sloterdijk’s trilogy, Spheres, leads to consider the elements of the very core of his complex, wide-opened, and even sometimes risky proposal, as a metaphorical redescription of the most philosophical of geometrical forms. And taking in account that his is precisely a fruitful change of point of view, this paper is dedicated to point out the moments in which this story of redescription in three stages, or metaphors, proposed by the German Philosopher so as to show that this poetical reconstruction of the space, provides the elements to understand our historical moment as a period of abundance preceded and dominated by the ancient fear of the losing of the center.
