About This Book
For the past few decades, debates on postmodernity have dominated areas like culture, morality, science, religion and intellect across the world. In philosophy, debates on whether or not the tradition of modern philosophy has ended emerged. Many have started celebrating a new, postmodern philosophy associated with Nietzsche, Heidegger, Derrida, Foucault, Lyotard, Rorty, Feyerabend, Kuhn and a few others. Postmodern philosophy has produced new social, scientific and political theories. It has also tried to define the multifaceted aspects of the phenomenon of postmodernism itself. While the tradition of modernism responds either by ignoring the new challenger or by attacking it, that of postmodernism strives to criticize traditional culture, religion, morality and scientific progress. However, the emerging postmodern discourses and the problems cannot be dismissed easily.
