Misoneism is a noun that refers to a fear of innovation or change.

The Greek word for hatred is misos (ME sose) combined with another Greek word Neos (NAY ose) for ‘new’ and the Italian ismo (EASE moe) meaning ‘a distinctive practice’ we get ‘the hatred of the new. The word can also refer to fear of new things.

I don’t understand why all these parents hate the young people’s music. All this misoneism has a tendency to stagnate progress.
