About This Item

De Gruyter, 2020. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Traditionally, humans recognized limits to their power, says Schabert, but modernity broke with that and its protagonists aspired to bring worlds of their imagination into reality. He analyzes the history of this project and its result: a civilization in the state of perennial crisis. Within this crisis, he traces a world beyond modernity. Among his topics are the transformation in the experience of the world: Francis of Assisi and Pascal, death's critique of the present age, modernity in the realm of the economy, divergence between culture and civilization, and the mechanics of government. (2020 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
