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.

“More than twenty years since his last publication, Sandy Krolick unleashes a firestorm of cultural critique and commentary,wrapped around the warmth of a loosely philosophical memoir.”
