The world is changing. Our old knowledge and general understanding of
the world do not provide sufficient answers anymore. As our old
understandings and the answers we get from them are insufficient, the
ways we are used to react and behave do not work well anymore either.
Social norms that used to make us come across as polite and friendly are
suddenly offensive to some; a good education that used to lead to a good
job is outdated when you receive your diploma. Our cultural compass
cannot contain and judge the world properly because the challenges we
are facing were not a part of our world when we came of age and learned
what the world was like.
Metamodernity provides us with a framework for understanding ourselves
and our societies in a more complex way. Metamodernity is a way of
strengthening local, national, continental, and global cultural heritage
among all. It thus has the potential to dismantle the fear of losing
one’s culture as the global economy as well as the internet and
exponential technologies are disrupting our current modes of societal
organization and governance.
