Reviews

"The book you are holding in your hand "Farewell to Modernism" is a very important book...the bottom line is this: read this book, take your time, think out of the box (straitjacket?) of Euromodernism, and this will change your life." "Amit Goswami, Theoretical Quantum Physicist, Emeritus Professor, University of Oregon"
"Rajani Kanth has been denouncing for a long time the analytic misunderstandings and moral misdeeds of Eurocentric Modernism. He has done this forcefully and with great consistency. This book puts together the entire case. Whether one agrees with his theses wholly, partially, or not at all, these are propositions with which one must seriously engage if we are to make our way to a better world." "Immanuel Wallerstein, Yale University"
