Description
 
George Cotkin (au). In the last two decades of the 19th century, Americans were trying to assimilate the new ideas of modernism, while yet preserving the traditional Victorian values. George Cotkin surveys the intellectual & cultural life of the American fin de siecle & examines the issues of racism, the status of women, & the development of a public culture. The comfortable Victorian values of continuity, progress, & order clashed with the unsettling modern notions of constant change, relative truth, & chaos. Cotkin demonstrates the effects of the shift in thinking on philosophy, anthropology, & the newly developing field of psychology.
