From Revolution to Fads-The Progress of Modernity is an interdisciplinary study of modernism from its origins in Romanticism and the French Revolution to the fads, media, and lifestyles of postmodern, contemporary culture. The predominance of the media, materialism and consumerism, the nihilism of Nietzsche, the resignation of Kierkegaard, the Beats of the 1950s, the counterculture of the 1960s, primitive art, the formation of the middle class, and popular culture are among the many subjects covered. Other subjects include Marxism, modern art, alienation, conceptions of self, and existentialism. In closing, From Revolution to Fads briefly explores the interest in ecology and the lives of monks as avenues which may lead from postmodernism to the next phase of Western culture. A study of essential elements of modernism and its progress from the 1700s, From Revolution to Fads-The Progress of Modernity overall presents an insightful and coherent perspective of modernism.
