This article examines the relation between philosophy and modernism. It explains that although modernism is a philosophical concept, it has rarely been treated as such. Philosophers have generally contented themselves with applications of modernism to the disciplinary field of philosophy of conventional usages forged elsewhere instead of digging down through the mantle of its multifarious instances to its conceptual core and working back up to philosophical interpretation of its varieties. The article argues that the transdisciplinarity of a post-Marxian philosophical modernism which affirms the temporal logic of the new through the openness of philosophical discourse to the present as a whole is a model in itself.

Keywords: philosophy; modernism; conventional usages; post-Marxian philosophy; philosophical modernism; temporal logic
