This course examines how the idea of "the modern" develops at the end of the 18th century in European philosophy and literature, and how being modern (or progressive, or hip) became one of the crucial criteria for understanding and evaluating cultural change. Are we still in modernity, or have we moved beyond the modern to the postmodern?

TOP REVIEWS FROM THE MODERN AND THE POSTMODERN (PART 2)
Sad to see it end. I loved this course. I thought Professor Roth was a great guide. As I've completed Part 2 I am tempted to go listen to the lectures all over again. This hooked me on MOOCs. 6 stars.
I loved this course. Michael Roth was superb in repacking the challenging content in an engaging and enthralling manner.
A very good way to start thinking about our times. I learned a lot about authors and reflected much during the course. Was really worth every class!
THE most interesting lecturer I have found in recent times.
Wonderfully enlightening approach to the subjec.
