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.

Where We Are

To repeat, in parts, some comments from a previous chapter: Hollywood and TV show the Unspeakable. Perhaps, if peace were a four-letter word, they would use it more often, to the millions who are under their spell. Pentagon discusses the Unthinkable Wall Street engages in the Irreparable. The Media dole out the Unbelievable. We, the People cannot expect Equity. We cannot ask for Justice We cannot require Security. We cannot demand that elected reps fulfill their mandates. We cannot insist on rights without our gracious high judiciary agreeing with the executive branch. Millions of us cannot expect gainful, let alone meaningful, jobs.
