In this timely new book Wellmer intervenes in the highly topical debates on modernity and post–modernity. Discussing the work of Adorno, Habermas, Peter Burger and Jean–François Lyotard, among others, he offers a penetrating analysis of the aesthetic, ethical and philosophical dimensions of the modern era. In opposition to those who view post–modernity as a sign of post–enlightenment, Wellmer makes a reasoned plea for a re–examination of the goals of emancipatory Enlightenment and explores its implications for the appreciation of modern art forms.
