Description:
Steven Best and Douglas Kellner This book presents a groundbreaking analysis of the emergence of a postmodern paradigm in the arts, science, politics, and theory. From the authors of POSTMODERN THEORY, the much-acclaimed introduction to key postmodern thinkers and themes, THE POSTMODERN TURN ranges over diverse intellectual and artistic terrain--from architecture, painting, literature, music, and politics, to the physical and biological sciences. Critically engaging postmodern theory and culture, Steven Best and Douglas Kellner illuminate our momentous transition between a modernist past and a future struggling to define itself. CONTENTS: 1.
