Beschreibung

The words "postmodernism" and "postmodernity" have become pervasive throughout the humanities, but their meanings frequently seem difficult to pin down. Postmodern Debates introduces modernity, postmodernism, and postmodernity through a series of debates between prominent thinkers in literary theory, philosophy, and cultural studies. The book explores this topic through thinkers who are at odds and encourages readers to consider the wide implications of postmodern thought in several areas.
