The March of Progress

One of the many reasons Yusef Asabiyah and I started this blog is because the Enlightenment and its aftermath continue to reveberate through contemporary culture, in the categories and concepts we use to understand ourselves, where we've been, and where we're going.

The debates about "modernity" and "postmodernity," in both their academic and lay guises, are a central theme in this on-going conversation.

Norman Mailer, in The Nation, has his own take on what it means to be "modern" and "postmodern".

I quite like this critique of our politics and so called "culture"
