Spirit of the Age: How Did We Get from Love MeDo to Trump?


This project is an analysis of the ideas that motivated societal processes from 1962 to 2016 in Europe, the USA and other relevant places. Using a Hegelian methodology, the analysis concentrates primarily on rock music as the privileged arena for the Zeitgeist throughout most of the period under consideration; it also covers fashion, film, literature, art, philosophy and socio-political developments.
