Postmodern culture is the culture in which all postmodernisms operate, sometimes in synergy, sometimes in competition; and because contemporary culture is, in a certain sense. Postmodernism can be seen, then, as a retheorization of the proliferation of distinctions that reflects the underlying dynamic of cultural modernity, the need to clear oneself a space. Modernism saw the economization of the world as the triumph of reason; postmodernism rejects that claim, allowing in the realm of theory the same proliferation of distinctions that modernity had begun. Post coloniality is after all this: and its post-, like that of postmodernism, is also a post- that challenges earlier legitimating narratives. And it challenges them in the name of the suffering victims of 'more than thirty African republics'.
