注释
The word modern, first recorded in 1585 in the sense “of present or recent times,” has traveled through the centuries designating things that inevitably must become old-fashioned as the word itself goes on to the next modern thing. We have now invented the word postmodern, as if we could finally fix modern in time, but even postmodern (first recorded in 1949) will seem fusty in the end, perhaps sooner than modern will. Going back to Late Latin modernus, “modern,” which is derived from modo in the sense “just now,” the English word modern (first recorded at the beginning of the 16th century) was not originally concerned with anything that could be later considered old-fashioned. It simply meant “being at this time, now existing,” an obsolete sense today. Beginning in the later 16th century, however, we see the word contrasted with the word ancient and also used of technology in a way that is clearly related to our own modern way of using the word. Modern was being applied specifically to what pertained to present times and also to what was new and not old-fashioned. Thus in the 19th and 20th centuries the word could be used to designate a movement in art, which is now being followed by postmodernism.
单词modern 首次于1585年以“现在的或最近的时代”的意义被记载, 它已经历了数个世纪,表明必然会变得过时的事物,就象这个词本身也会继续走向更加现代。现在我们已发明了单词postmodern, 仿佛我们终于能及时固定住modern 的了, 但即使是postmodern (首次于1949年记载)最终也会显得过时, 也许比modern 更快。 可追溯至近代拉丁词modernus “现代的”, 源自表示“刚才”意思的modo , 英语单词modern (首先在16世纪初被记载)原本与后来被认为过时的事物没有任何联系。 它只意味着“现时的,现存的”,今天已废弃了的一个意思。然而从16世纪晚期我们看到这个词成为ancient 的反义词并且用于科技, 其意义与我们现在使用的意义明显相关。Modern 当时特指现时的事物, 也指新的且不过时的事物。因此在19世纪和20世纪这个词能被用来表示艺术上的一个运动,现在尾随其后的是后现代主义
