The crisis of modernity by Augusto Del Noce( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and French and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his native Italy Augusto Del Noce is regarded as one of the preeminent political thinkers and philosophers of the period after the Second World War. The Crisis of Modernity makes available for the first time in English a selection of Del Noce's essays and lectures on the cultural history of the twentieth century. Del Noce maintained that twentieth-century history must be understood specifically as a philosophical history, because Western culture was profoundly affected by the major philosophies of the previous century such as Idealism, Marxism, and Positivism. Such philosophies became the secular, neo-gnostic surrogate of Christianity for the European educated classes after the French Revolution, and the twentieth century put them to the practical test, bringing to light their ultimate and necessary consequences. One of the first thinkers to recognize the failure of Marxism, Del Noce posited that this failure set the stage for a new secular, technocratic society that had taken up Marx's historical materialism and atheism while rejecting his revolutionary doctrine. Displaying Del Noce's rare ability to reconstruct intellectual genealogies and to expose the deep metaphysical premises of social and political movements, The Crisis of Modernity presents an original reading of secularization, scientism, the sexual revolution, and the history of modern Western culture. -- from back cover
The age of secularization by Augusto Del Noce( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A thought-provoking collection of essays and lectures by one of the most perceptive Italian cultural critics of the period after World War Two. The Age of Secularization is a collection of eleven essays and lectures by Augusto Del Noce, which originally appeared in print between 1964 and 1969 and which Del Noce himself selected and re-published as a book in 1970. By that time he had already established his reputation as one of Italy's foremost historians of ideas and political thinkers, and The Age of Secularization was quickly recognized as one of the most original and penetrating attempts to interpret the cultural and political turmoil of the late 1960's. Among other topics, Del Noce discusses the student protests of 1968, the counter-culture of the sixties, the significance of the sexual revolution, the nature of the technological society and the relationship between Christianity and modern culture. The Age of Secularization documents the encounter, so to speak, between a key period of contemporary history and the full intellectual maturity of one of its most perceptive observers. This is one of the reasons why it remains surprisingly relevant and fresh almost fifty years later."--
