About this product
- DescriptionSteven B. Smith examines the concept of modernity, t as the end product of historical developments but as a state of mind. He explores modernism as a source of both pride and anxiety, suggesting that its most distinctive characteristics are the self-criticisms and doubts that accompany social and political progress. Providing profiles of the modern project's most powerful defenders and critics-from Machiavelli and Spiza to Saul Bellow and Isaiah Berlin-this provocative work of philosophy and political science offers a vel perspective on what it means to be modern and why discontent and sometimes radical rejection are its inevitable by-products.
- Author BiographySteven B. Smith is Alfred Cowles Professor of Political Science and Philosophy at Yale University. He lives in New Haven, CT.
