This concluding chapter discusses the relation of Ian McEwan's works in relation to the so-called ‘third culture’. It suggests that McEwan's contribution to the ‘third culture’ reveals structural affinities with the double consciousness of modernism and also embodies an intensification of modernist self-consciousness. This chapter suggests that McEwan's unsettling art upsets the equilibrium of knowledge and experience that modernism held out as a fleeting possibility.
