The nature of modern society Without question, modern society brings progress in the form of material abundance
The nature of modern society. By its very principle of operation, it ceaselessly innovates and changes. Having largely eliminated the agricultural workforce, it moves on manufacturing employment by creating new automated technology that increases manufacturing productivity while displacing workers. Without question, modern society brings progress in the form of material abundance. Less certainly, it brings increasing control of the natural and social environment.
Two fundamental changes affected the status of early modern women. A second change, perhaps related to the first, was the advancing age of first marriage. Thank you for your feedback.

The pluralism of contemporary societies provides a constant theme since Turner argues that virtually all modern societies are multicultural
The pluralism of contemporary societies provides a constant theme since Turner argues that virtually all modern societies are multicultural. Because in practice it is difficult to separate ‘religion’ from ‘culture’, all multicultural societies are by definition multi-faith societies (175). These ideas violate a certain rigidly objectivist western metaphysics but resonate with eastern philosophies such as Buddhism and Hinduism.
