Modernity has had so many meanings, it has tried to combine so many values that it has become impossible to use it to define the future — Especially now with ecological mutations.
If we don’t want to be totally lost, it might be necessary to reset our individual instruments.
In this book, we propose to do the reset in several steps, from relocalizing the global to secular at last. Each step follows a specific procedure that might help in registering the experience of the new world into which we have been thrown.
If we are successful, readers might be more willing to enter into diplomatic encounters with other cultures that have been thrown into the same maelstrom of modernity. Is it possible that the course of those encounters might be altered once modernizers have reset their instruments?
