Publisher's Summary

Postmodernism has become the buzzword of contemporary society over the last decade. But how can it be defined? In this highly engaging introduction, the mysteries of this most elusive of concepts are unraveled, casting a critical light upon the way we live now, from the politicizing of museum culture to the cult of the politically correct. The key postmodernist ideas are explored and challenged, as they figure in the theory, philosophy, politics, ethics, and artwork of the period, and it is shown how they have interacted within a postmodernist culture.

Now I understand what postmodernism is!

I’ve read/listened to multiple books about this subject, but this book is the only one that gave me a systematic, progressive, noncondescending account and critique of the subject. The only problem is the robotic voice of the narrator, it didn’t bother my understanding, but still it deserves better narration.
Big “Thank You” to the author.

Awful Narration

Very good content yet awful narration. A bot reading this would not sound any different.
