The Age to Come: Authenticity, Post-Modernism and How To Survive What Comes Next
By David Boyle
We have been through modernism.
And post-modernism has already become the cultural norm – a sure sign that its power may be ebbing.
But what is ‘The Age To Come’.
In this provocative, stimulating collection of essays David Boyle examines trends in the arts, business, academia and government to draw a map of the world our children will be living in.
The way we all live our lives is dominated by sweeping philosophical trends covering culture, politics and morality.
The age of post-modernism with its shiny, glitzy, ironic and media savvy jokes, fakery and moral relativism has been dominant for three decades.
But the first shoots are emerging of a new age which looks set to sweep it away,.
It will be based on depth, authenticity and human relationships – and it will change the lives of our children completely.
In ‘The Age to Come’, David Boyle heralds this emerging paradigm, explains what it means and why it is coming – and, in a series of cutting edge essays, predicts where it will take us.
