Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Postmodernism: postmodernism is the expression for a conception in art, literature and some scientific areas that the one-dimensional idea of progress, which is attributed to modernity, is to be opposed with a multidimensional approach. Thereby, an equality of competing approaches can be assumed. The prehistory of postmodernism dates back to the 19th century. See also relativism, progress, history.
