From the sublime to the ridiculous...
We believe we are living in modern times because we have the audacity to use such terms as Modernism and the Modern Movement - but this is nothing new Art Nouveau and Ars Nova (14th century!) have preceded it. It's only in this truly confused time that we come out with terms like Post Modern - we now think we have progressed beyond being up to date - we are ahead of the Avant Garde - modern is passé.
What C.S. Lewis called 'chronological snobbery'?
