Modernity, Today and Tomorrow
Why a theory of Modernity? You can compare people's relationship with modernity to their relationship with planet Earth... it's a home for humankind, not in space but in time. Modernity is not the twentieth century nor the twenty-first, it’s the now.
Meaningful understanding of modernity is more of an ethical question... What is modernity ought to be? It's thinking about the state of things. Can you agree with how things are and how they're happening? This day and age, right now. Is modernity satisfactory, agreeable?
