In Nordic Ideology, the anticipated sequel to The Listening Society, the great philosopher Hanzi Freinacht strikes again from his refuge in the Alps—now with a yet bolder mission: to write social and political theory as a page-turner.


This book can be read independently of the first one and it outlines a path to a metamodern society, emerging from the Nordic countries—one

To me, this is about co-developing and growing our capability to face all problems at their level: nothing less than a societal, secular Bodhisattva vow for all beings, the ultimate game of coordinating all perspectives.

It’s a lot to take in, but the eventual reward was an upgrade to my memetic operating system or, as conceptualized by the first book, symbolic code through which to make sense of our world and its socially chaotic times. This feels like a way of relating to

If the previous academic works on ‘metamodernism’ (Vermeulen, Van der Akker, Gibbons) were apt in pointing out the real shifts in feelings and expectations of the artists, and if some other people who played with the term (Seth Abramson, Luke Turner) were capable of voicing relevant implications, precepts, and ‘rules’ of metamodern worldview, it is only within a framework developed by Hanzi Freinacht that these many different lines are synchronised to make real applied sense. Why? Partly because ...more

This book is not disappointing. Even though sometimes I felt some naivety in the system Hanzi is proposing (I think it is normal when you want to propose a brand new ideology), he did a very compelling diagnostic of the current state of affairs and the history of mankind from a kind of hegelian dialectic (which you can understand in a deeper way reading the Book One). He tried to take all the variables, he tried to understand the mistakes we as a human beings have committed through history and a ...more

This book pitches basically an entirely new society, providing insightful notes along the way about freedom, equality, and gender and ethnic relations. Want to find out about the Montesquieu 2.0? Want to know why communism failed? This book is well worth the read!

This book doesn't deserve 5 stars but it does, kind of. Hard to explain. Good and bad. Deep and shallow. Original and plagiarized. And I'm sure the authors agree. ...more

“Point being: we’ll never have a harmonious, kind and functional society without extensive inner work being done by many or most of us on a regular basis. And this is where the neo-monastic institutions would be of help: At major transit stations and periods of crisis in life, people would be supported to do the hard work that inner integration requires. Seriously. It’s hard work. It takes time, effort and resources. I woke up in the middle of the night a few days ago. There was a terrifying emptiness in my heart that had somehow snuck up upon me during sleep. There was a kind of inner storm cloud, a chaos I couldn’t grasp or even see the beginning or the end of. In my mind lingered the memory of a strangely violent dream in which I had been stopped from calling an ambulance after somebody had been struck down. I felt deeply disoriented; drifting in an imageless field. Everything around me felt unreal somehow, and I feared that madness might creep up on me, as it has on others in my family. Yet, the experience was eerily familiar. I sensed how this confusion had made itself known earlier, in waking states, as a subtle tinge on the fringe of my awareness. I spent a good portion of the following day away from writing and studies, meditating and exploring what appeared to be an old wound that had opened in my mind. Today, a few days later, my mind is clear and open as a cloudless sky, the love of life resting softly in my chest. I cherish these peaceful moments, as I know they too will pass, sooner or later.” 0 likes
“We’re shifting from one pattern, one societal creature, to another. And as long as we conceive of society, the world, and our place in it, from a distinctly modern perspective, we will have mounting dissonance until our ears bleed.” 0 likes
