How will modernity fall

Fall of the (world) order

by Lothar Brock Anyone who picks up this book should imagine an author giving a lecture to a group of die-hard business people from the New Mexico desert at seven in the morning with charming ease and sparse, but connecting gestures, about the EU as an imagined community and is celebrated lavishly for it. Or a theorist with astonishingly practical knowledge of altitude medicine and the life-saving ability under certain circumstances to make the sight of the depths bearable for panicked mountain companions. Or the lead singer of a fairly professional music group that has made it its business to take care of the Rolling Stones' songs and, as a master of reproduction, throws admirers of the original into frenzy - from Stockholm to OfIenbach. In no case, however, should one imagine an author as one would imagine when one reads this book. Or is it? But! It could be that someone experiences this book not only as a rewarding ordeal, but also as a pleasure, once they have got over the subtitle. To the matter: "Fall of the world order" - the traps or the falling? The topic does not reveal it; because between modernity and postmodernism there is a wide field in which anything can happen. So what is it about? Mathias Albert understands that Working area of ​​international relations (i.e. teaching and research on this subject area) as that sub-area of ​​the social sciences that deals with the world order.
