The Vertigo Years Europe 1900 1914 Download æ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Europe 1900–1914 a world adrift a pulsating era of creativity and contradictions The major topics of the day terrorism globalization immigration consumerism the collapse of moral values and the rivalry of superpowers The twentieth century was not born in the trenches of the Somme or Passchendaele but rather in the fifteen vertiginous years preceding World War IIn this short span of time a new world order was emerging in ultimately tragic contradiction to the old These were the years in which the political and personal. Dangerous Ideas Necessary Ideas The Vertigo Years traces the initial eruptions of some of the most explosive ideas and social phenomenons of the century that bore the brunt of the first mad rush of modernity from socialism and fascism to nuclear physics and the theory of relativity from conceptual art and consumer society to mass media and democratization to feminism and psychoanalysis The many issues and the intellectual interplay is explored in great detail and gives an overall impression of what seems in retrospect like backing for the war that followed by every section of the social classes from the intellectual elite to the middle classes to the oppressed classes We may even be tempted to see the war itself as a subconscious eruption of such strong tendencies that pervaded a restless continent and thus the worldGranted it was weird times but the ping pong of retrospectively attributing the war to all these ideas and tendencies and all these back to the war is not valid The turn of the century was marked by many leaps of understanding and also by a blind faith in science and progress and a strong tendency to believe simplistic arguments The war itself was a product of this blind faith in technological advance and an inability to think through the various connected effects of each advance and its application in any field including the military A mad scramble for catch all theoriesMost of the wildest surmises of the era seems laughable at best or dangerous at worst to us now especially the term Belle poue and the many excesses of fields such as Criminology Phrenology etc But what we need to understand is that without such wild forays and over confident theories science would not have progressed at such a rate There is now an unfortunate tendency to look back at these theories and mock them with a typical Look what THAT led to Isn t it deplorable that even a theory like Darwinism still has to buckle occasionally under the weight of its origins and the distortions visited upon it back then Isn t it at least sad that the intellectual legacy of philosophers like Nietzsche is perpetually tainted by the twisting it was subjected to by over zealous followers Isn t the same the case even with Marxism Why do they all have to be judged with hindsight bias It is our loss that these ideas are tainted and even so when we know so well that there is enough wheat among the supposed chaff to make them well worth passionate study and engagementThis book allows us to see those ideas including the ones that seem virulent and culpable to us today in a new light in the light of exploration and intellectual abandonment As necessary precursors to both the good and the bad hard to distinguish or separate at the moment of conceptionThis is to be achieved by seeing the whole period in a new light far way from the shadow cast upon it by later eventsThat is when we can understand and appreciate the many ideas and false starts and sputtering that were necessary to the march of progress That is also when we can learn to liberate the ideas from the weight of history and set them free again to rejuvenate our own times The Thought Experiment Blom is well aware that it is impossible to see this momentous period without the perspective of the war that followed True And the period deserves to be seen without that shadow but this book proves that it is impossible to read without that shadow and importantly the author must have realized that it is impossible to write without it either especially when most of the readers who turn to the book will do so to understand the war and its lead up betterThat is why Blom asks us to indulge in a thought experiment that should be sustained throughout the reading of this book Blom invites us to look at the era without the benefit of our retrospective blinkers He asks us to imagine that written history ended on 1914 so that this complicated period is not overshadowed by the events that followed This is very hard to do and the moment we loose sight of this and slip back into our impatience to understand the war much of the book will seem pointless to the reader If the reader wishes to understand the period heshe needs to persist in this little suspension of beliefAfter all no period deserves to be treated merely as a lead up to some historic event but needs to be approached on its own terms to discover the true complexity of the people and ideas which inhabited and shaped itA lot was going on than just the war Evolution: The Grand Synthesis of creativity and contradictions The
