The culture of modernity and postmodernity on trial

Our times - a critique

Like war vis-à-vis diplomacy, postmodernity is a continuation of modernity by other means. —David Rapport Lachterman

The trial of modernity

What about modernity? What is it? Is it inevitable? Is it bad? Is it transitory? Why do so many critics hate it, who are obviously not at home in the premodern? Is it hated most by those involved in its failures? Modernity puts to a test all those syncretistic systems combining Christianity with paganism and delegitimizes the hierarchies built on those systems. Review of Modernity on Endless Trial, by Leszek Kolakowski Review of The Flight from Truth: The Reign of Deceit in the Age of Information by Jean-François Revel Review of The Crisis of Modernity by Augusto Del Noce Michael W. Kelley Review of No Place for Truth: Or Whatever Happened to Evangelical Theology? and God in the Wasteland: The Reality of Truth in a World of Fading Dreams, by David Wells Review of On Looking into the Abyss: Untimely Thoughts on Culture and Society, by Gertrude Himmelfarb Franklin Sanders The Militia: Is It Time to Fight? — A View from 25 Years Ago

Modernity as gnosticism

It began with Rousseau. Man must remake himself and his world together with him, because this event, thought of as Revolution, is the only means by which man’s nature, which is his freedom, can create a condition worthy of him. T. E. Wilder Gnosticism in the Cinema - Christianity and Society, Vol. XVIII., No. 1, Summer 2008, p. 48.
