Postmodern encounters book
The postmodern, David Harvey suggests, ‘swims, even wallows, in the fragmentary and the chaotic currents of change as if that is all there is’ (1989: 44). In particular, it ‘insists upon the plurality of “power discourse” formations (Foucault), or of “language games” (Lyotard)’. More generally, it rejects any ‘metalanguage, meta-narrative, or meta-theory through which all things can be connected or represented. Universal and eternal truths [and facts] if they exist at all, cannot be specified’ (45).
