This article sums up the key findings of this study on modernism. It discusses the ‘newness’ in early and late modernisms, and suggests that the very range of articles in this book is itself witness to the many types and different manifestations, in different media, and across uneven histories, of what we term modernism, or the avant-garde. The article traces the origin of modernism in different countries, and highlights its relations with other disciplines including philosophy, science, and history.

Keywords: modernism; avant-garde; philosophy; science; history
