There is a continuing and growing interest in postmodernism as a ‘system’ of ideas and as a way of understanding contemporary social and cultural trends. There is now a great deal of published work which examines, often critically, postmodern perspectives and concepts and their implications for the study of a wide range of contemporary phenomena. This work is found in areas such as philosophy, feminist studies, cultural studies, literary criticism and to a lesser extent psychology.
