The changes and disruptions of the past hundred years have shaped our conception of reality, our thought, and our language. In the context of 100 Years of Now, the discussion series Dictionary of Now reflects on the capacity of words to both depict and create reality. The selected terms for the Dictionary organize complex fields of knowledge. Since the modern age this went hand in hand with the search for universal truths and codified usages. The Dictionary of Now will confront this assertion of linguistic universalism with specific contemporary positions.
