    Tried on BoO for the first time today. Didn't go so well. Apparently Scott Sternberg likes designs for short people.

    The story of modernism started with enlightenment thought, where rationalism could make the world better.
    Romanticism responded to ratioinalism saying that reason and order wasn't going to get us anywhere and we should look to nature and emotions.
    And then modernism says no reason can make stuff better but we have to break with the past because it was holding us back.
    Postmodernism states that the "improvement" that modernism likes is a lie and al ot of our assumptions are fundamentally flawed.

    I think most people would agree on that take. Modernism is a bit murky though. In literature particularly Modernism didn't mean breaking from the past. Think of T.S. Eliot's "Tradition and the Individual Talent." Or think of "Ulysses." Or basically everything Ezra Pound ever did (he said "make it new," but he was basically reinventing what had come before). In painting, Picasso used the same ideas regarding perspective that you see in the prehistoric paintings on cave walls in Lascaux. Kinda sounds like Neoclassicism, which came well before Modernism. So what exactly is Modernism?

    Make a new thread... it's great that you're talking about this but honestly I'd just as soon skip the walls of text entirely

    a big part of modernism is also the sense of a progress, teleological or otherwise.

    I don't have one, but I have the hoodie version. Both have the typical geller elements - half raglan construction, geometric blocking, etc... Nice.

    lol. listen man, first of all if you are serious about your question you need to understand that big sweeping words like modernism and postmodernism can't be applied across the board. modernist literature is in many ways different and in many ways resonant with modernist visual art. It isn't really one big coherent thing that can be labeled neatly and filed away. Look at and study individual works and that might be helpful. I dunno. Maybe just take Eng 101 or an art history class that covers late 19th and 20th century art? You may be further confused by the "Modern" period of philosophy which basically = big Euro philosophers from Descartes to Kant. Postmodern philosophy is another can of worms with no real clear definition; kinda just a convenient way to group together a bunch of mid to late 20th century Euro (mostly French) philosophers who annoy a lot of people because they're not easy to read or try to understand.

    None of this really maters but for the record none of your responses make any sense; Tradition and the IndividualTalent is an essay about writing, it is not a work of Modernist fiction; while of course Joyce reframes the Odyssey as well as the Bible and perhaps the novel in general among other things, Ulysses is certainly a break from the past I have no idea how you'd argue otherwise. Same goes for Pound. Saying Picasso used the same ideas regarding perspective as those seen in cave paintings is simply not true, obfuscation at best. The Lascaux cave paintings were discovered in 1940, Braques and Picasso basically invented and worked out cubism between 1912-1930.
