The Myth of Modernity
Modernity is an era that began during the 18th century and progressed throughout the 19th century. It was marked by a shift from traditionalism to liberalism, which was driven by a rational and scientific approach to life. The controlling myth of modernity was that human progress could be achieved by relying on the power of reason and science. This idea was supported by two major material changes: the Industrial Revolution and the rise of capitalism (Foucault, 2019). These changes allowed for more efficient production and distribution of goods, and created a new social order based on merit and achievement.

This leads to a disregard for the individual, and a disregard for the environment (Harvey, 2018).

It is marked by a rejection of universal truths and a focus on the subjective.
