The chief concerns of this book are with the "vulnerability" of modernity. It addresses a series of questions including economic and moral institutions established by the West meet the immense challenges now posed in the late 20th century? Are we living in a world from which emotional satisfaction is disappearing? Are the structures of modern life eradicating all authentic elements of everyday existence? These and other momentous questions face not only philosophical attempts to interpret the nature of modernity, but also raise issues that confront every person living in modern social environments. The papers collected together in the book aim to provide an integrated statement of the authors position concerning the fate of human kind as we approach the 21st century. This book is designed to appeal to all students and professionals in philosophy, political theory, cultural studies and sociology.
