Summary

"Postmodernism" became the buzzword of contemporary society in the 1990s. Yet, even now, it still remains confusing and baffling in its variety of defiinitions, contexts and associations.Beginning Postmodernismaims to offer clear, accessible and step-by-step introductions to postmodernism across a wide range of subjects. It encourages readers to explore how the debates about postmodernism have emerged from basic philosophical and cultural ideas, and to develop comparative connections and ideas from one area to another. With its emphasis firmly on "postmodernism in practice," the book contains questions designed to help readers understand and reflect upon a variety of positions within the following areas of contemporary culture: philosophy and cultural theory; architecture and concepts of space; visual art, sculpture and material culture; pupular culture and music; film, video and television; and the social sciences
