The Future of an Illusion
For anyone who has come of professional age in the last ten years, as I have, the phrase "crisis of the humanities" has either become empty, or freighted in such a way as to be nearly inexplicable. It's not exactly crisis itself, but what's supposed to be "in" crisis that interests me, however. For it's clear that a certain sense of crisis is shared by many in moder. The question I'd like to pursue here would perhaps make an issue of this reflection, in the name of another: namely, what are the stakes of crisis? What is the nature of the game?
