And yet, according to Paul Argenti, Professor of Corporate Communication at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, the experience of managing through it is not necessarily unique. Similar to other crises, such as 9/11 and the global financial downturn, workers feel scared and worried. “Uncertainty triggers fear,” he says. “People are freaking out and wondering, ‘What does this mean for my company, my job, and my future?’”

Is our great contemporary fear anonymity?

If the property that grounded the self in Romanticism was sincerity, and in modernism was authenticity, then in postmodernism is it visibility?  So asked the writer of a thought-provoking article on our obsession with connectivity.

Is this what our contemporary selves really want?  To be recognised, to be connected, to be visible, if not to the millions via, say, the X Factor, then at least to the hundreds, via Twitter or Facebook or LinkedIn?

Visit us, please, from a previous century and you'll see us walking down the streets, wired cockleshells in ears, jabbering like lunatics in a Victorian asylum - from David Hare's "It all started 96 hours after 9/11"

The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude - Aldous Huxley
