The article is an attempt to interpret the twentieth century. The interpretation is anchored between José Ortega y Gasset’s characterization of the modern art of the early twentieth century and postmodernists’ characterization of the late twentieth century. Develop­ments in arts, religion, politics, economy, sports and science are treated from this perspective.
