Spineless Admiration

On Anti-Nostalgia

New!

From: On Nostalgia

$1.90

The author details how nostalgia is regarded with suspicion from academic to widespread cultural use. Advocates of dismissing the past, and their perpective of the world as just and meritocratic are considered, as well as the steady and esentially irriversible progress of the scientific method, the avant-garde, and futurism.
