Global Crisis and Cultural Criticism
Welcome! Driven by the global compass of a crisis threatening to engulf the planet, our blog offers a critique of modern culture in its diverse manifestations: economic, political, social, ecological, and philosophical. Challenging the trajectory of the human project since the beginning of recorded history, it examines many of our most sacred assumptions: freedom, community, individuality, democracy, justice, reason, time, and happiness. It seeks to provide a forum for ongoing assessment and analysis of events unfolding. Many of these issues were previously sketched in The Recovery of Ecstasy: Notebooks From Siberia.
