 Contemporary classical music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Contemporary music composition has been altered with growing force by computers in composition, which allow for composers to listen to renderings of their scores before performance, compose by layering performed parts over each other as John Adams is known to do, and to disseminate scores over the internet.
Contemporary classical music can be heard in film scores and other program music, such as Tan Dun's score for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Philip Glass's score for The Hours, Howard Shore's scores for Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings films, and Karl Jenkins' theme used by De Beers in their advertising campaign.
Many contemporary composers working the early 21st century were prominent figures in the 20th century, including György Ligeti, Mauricio Kagel, Harrison Birtwistle, Elliot Carter, Steve Reich, Philip Glass, John Adams and Henri Dutilleux and many younger figures such as Oliver Knussen, Thomas Adès and Lera Auerbach.

 Contemporary Skepticism [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Contemporary discussion of the problem of the radical skepticism has tended to focus on a formulation of that problem in terms of a paradox consisting of the joint incompatibility of three claims, each of which appears, on the surface of things and taken individually, to be perfectly in order.
Contemporary discussions of skepticism have thus tended to make the radical epistemological claim that we fail to know (hardly) anything.

 Contemporary Catholics
The Contemporary Catholic is very much like Capuchin Father Michael Crosby's Culture II Catholic (The Dysfunctional Church: Addiction and Codependency in the Family of Catholicism, Notre Dame: Ave Maria Press, 1991; ISBN  0-87793-455-X).
Contemporary Catholics experience the way of the institutionalized church is contradictory to Christ's Way and, perhaps altho well-meaning, it is simply irrelevant.
Contemporary Catholics tend to realize that some people's ideologic belief in the belief systems of the three Semetic Religions (Judiasm, Christianity, and Islam) have given way to the death of many self-righteously proclaimed unbelievers.
