The Modern Project

The Modern Project is a general name for the political and philosophical movement that gave rise to modernity, broadly understood. This endeavor was begun by certain figures in the late Middle Ages and Renaissance to uproot Western culture from its traditional moorings in the givenness of the world and assert the individual human being or human mind as the origin of all things. Characteristic ideas of the modern project include individualism, marxism, rationalism, scientism and subjectivism. Key initiators of the modern project include Niccolò Machiavelli, Francis Bacon, René Descartes, Galileo Galilei; the conceptual shift that prepared the way for the modern project began further back with the writings of Duns Scotus and William of Ockham. The success of Newtonian mechanics marked a major victory of the modern project and started the Enlightenment; the use of the word "project" in this case is related to Heidegger's use of entwerf in Being and Time translated a project or projection. "An Entwurf in Heidegger's sense is not a particular project.

The use of "Entwurf" is in direct response to the German anti-Moderns and their epigones who see "modern" as a moment unfolding in history. Heidegger's use of "Entwurf" moves the ground of the discussion from nineteenth century historicism to ontology. Rémi Brague, The Law of God: The Philosophical History of an Idea.
