Farewell to Modernism

On Human Devolution in the Twenty-First Century


Rajani Kanth

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 to the 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.

Few, in these times, are into seeking Ultimate Causes. Most wouldn’t know how, even if they really wished to know.

Whilst they may have some topical value in describing viewpoints, those two aging postures are also strictly passé: for they are both internal to Modernism, and serve only to prop up the Edifice.
