Comments on “Countercultures: modernity’s last gasp”



Marcus's picture

Coincidentally I just read your analysis of countercultures, and today am reading this related article in The Atlantic on America’s descent into post-rational post-reality fantasyland, including a consideration of the New Age movement, the anti-science movement, the rejection of truth, and the relativistic views that all opinions are valid.

This page introduces a section containing the following:

This page is in the section How meaning fell apart,
      which is in Meaningness and Time: past, present, future.

The previous page is Systems of meaning all in flames. (That page introduces its own subsection.)

This page’s topics are Countercultures, Eternalism, History of ideas, Politics, and Systems.

General explanation: Meaningness is a hypertext book (in progress), plus a “metablog” that comments on it. The book begins with an appetizer. Alternatively, you might like to look at its table of contents, or some other starting points. Classification of pages by topics supplements the book and metablog structures. Terms with dotted underlining (example: meaningness) show a definition if you click on them. Pages marked with ⚒ are still under construction. Copyright ©2010–2020 David Chapman.
