The Changing European-Western Setting: Post-Postmodernity and Meta-Modernity as Carriers of a Renaissance of Values Toward “Everyday Spirituality”?

  • 152 Accesses

Part of the Culture and Religion in International Relations book series (CRIR)

Abstract

Interestingly, such a broad spectrum of re-globalization phenomena widely coincides with an allegedly fundamental turn within the mainstream mindset (if there is such a thing) in Western open societies. This turn is connected with an increasing sense of “uncontrollability of the world.” It seems to be underway, with increasing insistence, since the 2010s: from modernity and postmodernity to “post-postmodernity” and “meta-modernity.”
