Explaining Postmodernism: Chapter One online


My Explaining Postmodernism: Skepticism and Socialism from Rousseau to Foucault has, gratifyingly, had two hardcover printings and eight softcover printings from 2004-2009.

Over the next while I will be making portions of the book available online at this new Explaining Postmodernism page here at my site.

To start, here are the Table of Contents [pdf] and Chapter One: What Postmodernism Is [pdf]. Hope you enjoy.

And, of course, it’s available at Amazon.
