We stand at the close of the Modern Era. The Enlightenment ideologies which have guided and misguided the West for the past five hundred years are reaching their final terminus, and a new era is threatening behind the horizon.
This, a time of great promise, is also one of unprecedented dangers. The European spirit which has guided entire continents of the world for long centuries stands on the brink of self-elimination, poisoned by shame, timidity and mediocrity. Only a new cultural and socio-political vision can break this spell and reawaken the sense of destiny in Europe's sons and daughters.
The New Prometheans is a brave exploration of the terrain of our times, and an attempt to determine the borders, if not to penetrate, the terra incognita of the future, as a summons to the children of the Occident to become the forgers of a higher tomorrow.
