  • Post-Modernism A Limited Introduction
  • Defining Post-Modernism
    • Post-Modernism labels art, literature, music, and architecture.
    • Attempting to describe P-M is a difficult task.
    • More than any other period, the definition of P-M is often determined by a comparison/contrast to another period.
  • Characteristics of P-M A blending and questioning of the real vs. the fictional Fragmentary and chaotic experimentation mingled characteristics; mixed genres No overarching truth; truth does not exist. External versus internal temporal disorder Look to non-west religion, social habitation, self-actualization No overarching narrative or explanation
  • Post-Modern Statements
    • The quest for truth is a lost cause.
    • A person’s sense of identity is a composite constructed by the forces of the surrounding culture.
    • The languages of our culture literally construct what we think of as “real” in our everyday existence.
    • Reality is created by those who have power.
