Overview

Small Wonder presents the dangers of the 'underside of modernity': the unleashing of unlimited lust for (global) power and wealth. Relying on leading critical intellectuals, Dallmayr offers a critique of the self-deceptions of our age, arguing in favor of the cultivation of the 'small wonder' of everyday life.
