Few contemporary thinkers can match the diversity, quantity, and
quality of work produced by Charles Taylor. At the center of this
corpus has been his work on Western modernity, the most important
effort of which being his 1989 opus, Sources of the Self.
Fifteen years later, Taylor has now published the first installment of
a new, related, but distinct study of Western modernity.
