Post Modernism or Po-Mo, you decide

by gurdeepmattu

Post Modernism is "the disappearance of a sense of history, the way in which our entire contemporary social system has little by little begun to lose its capacity to retain its own past, has begun to live in a perpetual present and in a perpetual change that obliterates traditions of the kind which all earlier social formations have had in one way or another to preserve… The information function of the media would thus be to help us to forget, to serve as the very agents and mechanisms of our historical amnesia" (Jameson).

"Simplifying to the extreme, I define the postmodern as incredulity toward metanarratives." –Lyotard
