The Postmodern Condition: A Report on Knowledge (Theory and History of Literature, Vol 10)

Jean-Francois Lyotard


IN STOCK$22.50

The ‘postmodern condition’ is one in which the global condition of societies is seen, not as determined by traditional economic or political frameworks, but as a state of culture.

This book it explores science and technology, makes connections between these epistemic, cultural, and political trends, and develops profound insights into the nature of our postmodernity. Many definitions of postmodernism focus on its nature as the aftermath of the modern industrial age when technology developed. This book extends that analysis to postmodernism by looking at the status of science, technology, and the arts, the significance of technocracy, and the way the flow of information is controlled in the Western world.
