This course examines how the idea of "the modern" develops at the end of the 18th century in European philosophy and literature, and how being modern (or progressive, or hip) became one of the crucial criteria for understanding and evaluating cultural change. Are we still in modernity, or have we moved beyond the modern to the postmodern?

TOP REVIEWS FROM THE MODERN AND THE POSTMODERN (PART 2)
Sad to see it end. I loved this course. I thought Professor Roth was a great guide. As I've completed Part 2 I am tempted to go listen to the lectures all over again. This hooked me on MOOCs. 6 stars.
Excellent course. Well constructed and well presented. Really enjoyed learning about a subject I previously only knew the name of!
Excellent! Looking forward for more classes like this one, and if they are with the same Professor, even better.
it really offered an insight into philosophical movements and works as well as an overall view on the evolution of Enlightenment ideas and their impact on modern thought
