The Failure of Modernism: The Cartesian Legacy and Contemporary Pluralism
CUA Press, 1999 - Philosophy - 269 pages
The contributors to The Failure of Modernism are influenced by the view that modernism has failed, and most of the essays attempt to critique specific features of modernism, often from a more traditional perspective. Modernism in philosophy is characterized by skepticism and anti-realism in epistemology, and by relativism in ethics and politics.
