Modernity and Ambivalence, Paperback Book

Modernity and Ambivalence Paperback


Modern civilization, Bauman argues, promised to make our lives understandable and open to our control.

This has not happened and today we no longer believe it ever will.

In this book, now available in paperback, Bauman argues that our postmodern age is the time for reconciliation with ambivalence, we must learn how to live in an incurably ambiguous world.
