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)
A very good way to start thinking about our times. I learned a lot about authors and reflected much during the course. Was really worth every class!
In my opinion, one of the best Mooc on liberal arts. Felt like being part of a real class all along. Best wishes to Prof. Michael and his team at Wesleyan.

Excellent course from an accomplished scholar, presents insights about his subject matter from all different points of view.
