Primary
Hanzi Freinacht
Political Philosopher | Sociologist | Historian | Author | Thought Leader on Metamodernism
More
 

An understanding of who Hanzi is provides a  taste of metamodernism itself. When complete, his proposed 6-volume magnum opus on metamodernism will be the first/only – and so, de facto definitive – published magnum opus on metamodernism. As described here, it will include politics (done), history, economics, ethics and law. 

Commentary by TLLP
Description:

From Metamoderna.org:

As a writer, Hanzi combines in-depth knowledge of several sciences and disciplines and offers maps of our time and the human condition with his characteristically accessible, poetic and humorous writing style – challenging the reader’s perspective of herself and the world.

Hanzi Freinacht epitomizes much of the metamodern philosophy and can be considered a personification of this strand of thought. He has produced a wide array of original, relevant and useful ideas for people in all walks of life. These ideas help you gain an upper hand in the new political, economic and cultural landscape of digital, postindustrial society.
