Project #49769 - humanities discussion

Background to the discussion: It might be said that our entire course has focused on the birth of the modern world as reflected in the development of art and culture in the West from the time of the Renaissance and Baroque eras through the Enlightenment and 19th century. This week we conclude our discussions by considering the tremendous cultural changes in Europe and America during the second half of the 19th century and turn of the 20th century. New ways of seeing and understanding the physical world, the universe, and the nature of human society and the individual were proliferating and bringing diversity to the arts and intellectual life of this era, diversity that has become a hallmark of the modern age. Certainly, change itself seems to be a key ingredient in defining modernity. As Chapter 18 makes clear, change was accelerating at an unprecedented pace as the 20th century approached.

Discussion requirements: Select an individual featured in Chapter 18 who you believe was a key figure in bringing change to his or her field of endeavor, whether in the arts, science, philosophy, or another area. Post a discussion thread of at least 100-150 words, describing this individual's achievements. For artists, composers, and writers, how did he or she break long-established rules through new forms of creative expression? Or, how did a scientist, philosopher, or intellectual "think outside the box" with new ideas and breakthroughs in practical or theoretical knowledge? What strikes you as distinctively modern about the accomplishments and impact of this individual?
