Modernism = philosophy that affirms the power of human beings to make, improve, deconstruct, and reshape their lives, with the aid of scientific knowledge, technology, an dpractical experimentation. Rooted in urban culture, where leisure activities as well as daily necessities are available commercially, modernity refers to the condition of post-industrial, capitalist society. Associated with ideas of progress and novelty, modernism reflects the dominant ethos of a society in which consumption plays a central role in one's daily activities. Because of its capitalist base, modernity emphasizes change and continual improvement often at the expense of the worker.

1881 - 1882.
