Description
Much of social and political thought over the last three centuries has been concerned with change, progress and a focus on creating something ‘better’ than we have now. This provocative book presents an alternative view: the antimodern condition. This involves the rejection of change and progress and instead seeks to promote certainty, permanence and settlement. The antimodern condition recognises that we dwell within traditions, which may evolve and change, but which keep us within the bounds of what is known and what works. The book combines well-known and less-known philosophers with film directors and even scenes on British buses in a devastating critique of modernity.
