Booksurge

A detailed study of the origins of the New Alienation. The author labels it normative or postmodern ennui and traces its rise to cultural power over the last two centuries.

A detailed study of the origins of the New Alienation (Postmodern Ennui) which is linked to social and cultural trends such as hypercapitalism, spiritual disenchantment, globalization, mediatisation, modern childrearing techniques, and so on.


Excerpt

I have argued that the vast literature on chronic ennui, stretching back over some two and a half thousand years of Western history, points to a modern form of chronic ennui which threatens the entire species. Today's chronic ennui is not confined to specific institutions nor to particular classes or social groupings but pervades Westernised social structures. It must not be seen as a mere temporary malaise ... but should be seen as the culmination of many historical developments which have placed more and more stress on the emotional and spiritual faculties of the human soul.Ennui [now] attacks ... and infects ... various organs of culture and society in systematic ways.
