Hemingway's The Sun also Rises is a profound response to the post-Narrative condition. The novel is important to Hemingway scholars because it presents the ontology, ethics, and aesthetics of Hemingway's worldview. It is important to post-modern theorists because it examines clearly and deeply the post-Narrative condition, exploring the philosophical and psychological implications of a condition that has been emerging since the Enlightenment, that most threatening of cultural conditions, nihilism, which can undermine the social fabric as well as the emotional, psychological, and ethical integrity of the individual if the condition is not accommodated in such a way as to enable people to survive meaningfully. Hemingway confronts the post-Narrative condition as a problem of nihilism and offers strategies that allow the individual and society to exist harmoniously and significantly. Also included in the book are essays on autonomous technology, the conflict between religion and science, the problem of nihilism in three Hemingway short stories, the theme of rediscovering the earth in The Sun Also Rises and the poems of Matsuo Bash, and the importance of rhetorical responsibility in the modern age.
