Verso, 1983 - Civilization, Modern - 383 pages
43 Reviews
This book develops the idea that Modernity's defining characteristic is that of continual reassertion of ambivalence. In light of this argument the author revisits writers such as Goethe, Marx and Dostoevsky adding new dimensions to them all as well as to our understanding of Modernity.
