It also demonstrates that, for Musil, mathematics answers to two major instances of modern crisis: the failing of reason and the loss of trust. Paradoxically combining critical questioning of its foundations and confidence in its usefulness, modern mathematics connects the approaches of analytic philosophy and outcome-focused pragmatism. The chapter thus argues that mathematics becomes a model not only of exactitude but also of vagueness and that in this paradoxical double- function it serves to inspire the critical trust needed to adjust epistemology, ethics and aesthetics in a time of profound change.
Not least, in its own form The Man without Qualities translates the model of mathematics into literary aesthetic by reflecting simultaneous examination of its conditions and trust in the credit of fiction. Chapter keywords The Man without Qualities Around 5 keywords. Type each keyword on its own Epistemology line. Ethics Intuitionism Pragmatism Vagueness Trust Repeat this section for each numbered chapter and, optionally, for unnumbered chapters. This chapter also zeroes in on a topic that runs through all chapters: the interrelations of mathematics and fiction.
The analysis focuses on illustrations of fictionality regarding the mathematical concepts of infinitesimals, the calculus, and probability theory and their philosophical and ethical consequences.

Do not include appendices Chapter number Conclusion Chapter title Conclusion: Modernism, Fiction and Mathematics Chapter abstract The conclusion summarises the varying ways in which the 3—5 sentences, or around modernist and postmodernist fictions discussed in this book inform words and no more than the notion of mathematical modernism.
Based on the results of the words study, the conclusion again argues for the need to account for the unique status of mathematics in the spectrum of the disciplines, particularly when the specific characteristics of mathematics gain attention with its modernist transformation. At the same time, mathematics becomes a necessary and fruitful concern of modernist studies, providing new insights on the roles of reason and imaginary concepts, as well as on modernist experimentation with literary form.
Fictions written in and about the period, as well as mathematical prose texts of the time, reconsider the foundations of reason and rediscover neglected aspects of rational domains, including, counter-intuitively, non-rational and imaginary dimensions. Type each keyword on its own Literature and science studies line. Modernization replaces or transforms traditions, collective identities, and past-orientations with revolutionary activities such as doubt, inquiry, individualism, and future-orientation.

The simplest understanding of modern culture is in contrast with tradional cultures , which prevailed through most human history and prehistory and still survive today in family life, rural and religious communities, etc. Like the Renaissance , the Enlightenment , and Romanticism , Modernism is a period or movement—an international movement in European, American, and World art, literature, and culture. Modernism begins in the late s or early s--a convenient starting point is just before World War 1 Modernism continues till the mids end of World War 2 in when it may be succeeded by Post-Modernism.
Or Modernism continues even now, if Post-Modernism or postmodernism is just more Modernism. Like other major cultural movements such as the Renaissance , the Enlightenment , or Romanticism , Modernism is both international and interdisciplinary or multimedia, etc. Modernism begins in the late s or early s, climaxing from the s to s as writers and artists throughout Europe, the USA, and beyond create and publish numerous revolutionary works that are still recognized as titanic and influential, even if, a century later, their application as models grows more remote and limited.
