Farewell to Modernism : On Human Devolution in the Twenty-first Century (Hardcover) (Rajani Kanth)
About this item
"Farewell to Modernism : On Human Devolution in the Twenty-First Century is an original, pathbreaking, revolutionary, and totalizing critique of received Modernist ideas, including Modernist Utopianism. In that vein, it unseats virtually every dearly held myth of EuroModernist discourse. It offers a new episteme based on our true ontic nature--our anthropic species-being--as an offset and correction to all brands of EuroModernist idylls, be they of Left or Right, that have repeatedly brought the world tothe brink of annihilation. In sum, this book argues that neither philosophy nor social science are tenable without a true, realist anthropology of the human species that sets limits to both political idealism and social engineering"--Publisher description.
