What is Polymodernity?

Polymodernity is about combining the best from the past and the present in the best possible ways to create a meaningful future.

Polymodernity combines four cultural codes: Indigenous (hunter-gatherer and agricultural Stone Age, Traditional (Bronze and Iron Ages), Modern, and Post-Modern.

Each of those four cultural codes entail important knowledge about what it means to be human. Experiences, realizations, and accumulated wisdom that we need now and in the future.

Polymodernity was previously named metamodernity, but it constantly got confused with metamodernism, so we changed the name. Watch the exploration of metamodernity versus metamodernism here.
