Description

Twentieth-Century Multiplicity explores the effect of the culture-wide sense that prevailing syntheses failed to account fully for the complexities of modern life. As Daniel H. Borus documents the belief that there were many truths, many beauties, and many values-a condition that the historian Henry Adams labeled multiplicity-rather than singular ones prompted new departures in a myriad of discourses and practices ranging from comic strips to politics to sociology.
