I've been occasionally lurking around for some months out of interest
in Percy's work, surfing the website too. How about attempting a
"revival" with one of my favorite quotations from Percy:
Sign Posts in a Strange Land, 309:
"The old modern age has ended. We live in a post-modern as well
as a post-Christian age which as yet has no name....
"It is post-modern because the Age of Enlightenment with its vision
of man as a rational creature, naturally good and part of the cosmos,
which itself is understandable by natural science--this age has also
ended. It ended with the catastrophes of the twentieth century."
What are we to make of the catastrophes of the 21st Century?
Not off to an especially good start, are we?! Or too gloomy
a quotation to prompt comment?
