Abstract [en]

This essay deals with project of modernity, on what it consists of and the value that is placed on its results. Modernity is a dream of a good society. It is not entirely wrong to call this project a dream, since dreams are always on the verge of becoming nightmares. The men involved in this project have always looked forward. This, I would argue, is for good reasons, and the results have been spectacular. However, this also implies that modernity has a special relationship to the past and that we, more or less successfully, have searched for methods to assess the efforts of the past and to dispose of them.
