In this book David Rosner introduces the reader to an interesting field - the cultural collapse in Germany in the interwar period and its impact on the nation's soul, with reverberations well beyond its borders. In a well structured discourse and engaging style, the author offers an informative and substantial interpretation of modernism, a competent introduction into the Weimar anti-modernist critique and its relevance for the current post-modern situation. The book is an excellent resource for the ongoing dialogue regarding the historical and cultural criticism in general and that of modernism - post-modernism in particular. -- Theodor Damian, Metropolitan College of New York
David Rosner thinks things profoundly. Like an arrow's arc, he finds direct lines between Weimar Germany and our own times-a culture in search of meaning; prevailing trends toward existential anxiety, anomie, and the unheimlich (uncanny, baffling or "un-home-like") nothingness that surrounds economic crisis; an emergent abandonment of true meaning in favor of (fascist or religious) fanaticism; and philosophical striving, such as Heiddegger's, to find a ground, a home for meaning that will answer the fears of the times. -- Peter W. Wakefield, Emory University
"Professor David J. Rosner's, Conservatism and Crisis-The Anti-Modernist Perspective in Twentieth-Century German Philosophy is a valuable contribution to the history of Weimar era anti-modernist philosophy in Germany." * Center for Research on Geopolitics *
