The Challenge of Trans-Modernism

  • Amit Goswami


So are we past the age of modernism, even post-modernism? Hardly. Modernism, with its human-over-nature philosophy, still dominates the West—and the philosophy is still being exported to other parts of the world. The post-modern malaise and angst still dominate some of the creative elite of our society. And much of new-age thinking is still dominated by the very soft attempts to reintegrate spiritual values into science, characteristic of the deep ecology movement. And yet, with a paradigm shift from a matter-based science to consciousnessbased science on the way, there is a real opportunity to enter a truly new age that transcends both modernism and post-modernism—the age of trans-modernism, transcendental modernism. But first, an explanation of terms.
