A illuminating class on our conditions in a world that changes at an exponential speed.
To quote one of the readings:"Modernity can best be grasped as an attitude, an ethos.
- This ironic heroization of the present, this transfiguring play of freedom with reality, this ascetic elaboration of the self — Baudelaire does not imagine that these have any place in society itself, or in the body politic. They can only be produced in another, a different place, which Baudelaire calls art."––– "What is Enlightenment" Foucault
