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.

The Future?

For over a year, I have disinterred, possibly ad nauseam, the various logics of Modernism, both overt and covert. Stated simply, there is little that is redemptive about it. Au contraire, it represents the most sweeping about-face of baseline anthropic values in the history of humankind. The consequences of that fateful eventuality are all about us: to witness—and despair. The fact that it fell to Europe to lead us all, ready or not, on that choice path to perdition may or may not be fortuitous.
