Faux-Modern Philosophy is an ideology that is projected to gain prominence towards the end of the post-modern era, generating a new worldview regarding personhood, ethics, art, literature, science, and culture.[1]

Some thinkers[2] have used a similar term, Pseudo-Modern, with Pseudo meaning, "not genuine," or "sham."[3] to discuss the end of the post-modern era.

Technologically and scientifically driven, Faux-Modernism is a marriage between two prior eras: Modern (1500-1945)- with its scientific and naturalistic bent, and, Post-modern Era (1945-present)- with its deconstructionist and relativist ideology, creating a hybrid of philosophy and scientific/technological development.

Faux means, "artificial," "imitation," or "false." [4]
