Fluid culture: metamodernism

This page is unfinished. It may be a mere placeholder in the book outline. Or, the text below (if any) may be a summary, or a discussion of what the page will say, or a partial or rough draft.

This page will introduce the cultural implications of the fluid mode.

For a preview, see "Desiderata for any future mode of meaningness."

For introductions to metamodernism, see Philip Damico's "Introduction" and Seth Abramson's "What Is Metamodernism?" and "Metamodernism: The Basics."

Hanzi Freinacht1 has developed metamodernism beyond culture narrowly, into a general conception including cognition, personal psychology, and social organization. He draws on many of the same sources I do, and points in many of the same directions. His web site is Metamoderna. Tom Amarque has produced a fine podcast interview with him; if you are familiar with my work, you'll find many of the same themes raised.

Naturally, I differ with each of these thinkers on some points.

  • 1. "Hanzi Freinacht" is a pseudonym for a team of two people, apparently.

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 ©2010–2018 David Chapman.
