More About Postmodernism for Beginners by Jim Powell; Joe Lee
 
 
 
Overview

If you are like most people, you re not sure what Postmodernism is. And if this were like most books on the subject, it probably wouldn t tell you.

Besides what a few grumpy critics claim, Postmodernism is not a bunch of meaningless intellectual mind games. On the contrary, it is a reaction to the most profound spiritual and philosophical crisis of our time the failure of the Enlightenment.

Jim Powell takes the position that Postmodernism is a series of maps that help people find their way through a changing world. Postmodernism For Beginners features the thoughts of Foucault on power and knowledge, Jameson on mapping the postmodern, Baudrillard on the media, Harvey on time-space compression, Derrida on deconstruction and Deleuze and Guattari on rhizomes. The book also discusses postmodern artifacts such as Madonna, cyberpunk, Buddhist ecology, and teledildonics.
