At Le Petit Prince tonight, a charming restaurant in the University neighborhood just above Place Saint-Michel on the Left Bank in Paris, we ate dinner with Arthur Morgan, an essayist and philosopher of steampunk who edits He posits that since we now live in the future, and it’s not so great – in fact more than a bit ominous – we remember a time when the future was full of hope and optimism. A promoter of Cabaret Du Néant and too French to admit any such thing, still, he hinted that contemporary culture could benefit from a return to optimism about our collective future.
