Up from Modernity

Kesler, Charles
September 1978
National Review;9/15/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 37, p1145
The article focuses on Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's concept of indictment of modern society. His critics failed to realize that he is anti-modern. The author maintained that to be able to understand the manner of thinking of this thinker, it is necessary to understand the terms he employs. His speech entitled "A World Split Apart" which was delivered at Harvard University is taken as an example.
