Evinnra – pomo has fueled the dark side of Left. I have plenty of examples of truth and justice being ignored for the sake of ‘political correctness.’ But it’s important to keep in mind that the ‘Right’ has followed their act – in the name of conservatism. Sure, the media has been a strong Left advo...

…in [NoMan’s] own words--“Pomo is pure evil.” There’s no room for genuine discussion when this sort of absolutist perspective underlies all... - Cindy * * * * * * * I'm also reticent to be the one to break this news to you, but you [Evinnra] and Noman seem to fit your criteria of a postmodern think...

Romansh speaks the truth, ‘this pomo thread is becoming positively weird.’ But it could never come close to being as weird as pomo philosophy. But we must remember that Romansh’s ‘truth’ is only valid within a certain social system and language game. noman, It's been said time and again in this thre...

Romansh - my English got tangled up in that line. I meant to address you personally just to acknowledge that I read your asking Evinnra what the word meant. My bad. But it is one of those words essential to understanding the sham of pomo philosophy. Yes Neo - you're beginning to understand. Pomo beg...

When we mistake a metaphor for a truth, we are repeating a historical blunder that has done very little but bring forth unprecedented human suffering and conflict. - JJ But dth-dth-dth-dth WHY!!!

Just for the fun of attempting clarity in this growing muddy puddle... where some seem to be going astray is making the assumption that questioning is equivalent to denying. - JJ JJ - in my subjective and highest form of reality you are just not getting it– what pomo philosophy is about.

Thanks for taking my insults so well JJ. What started me on this war path was your reaction in the ‘pomo self’ thread. But what really got me riled was reading the paper you cited. Every paragraph reminds me of the intellectual nightmare I entered into in the late 70s. (I've always said that people ...

And regarding judgementphobia, whether it is part of post modernism I won't argue but it is part of Jesus' teachings and part of the Buddhist tradition (or so I am led to understand). Also if we have no free will (sorry) then we need to wield judgement, if at all, with care. Having said. I've that ...

Thank you all for your comments, opinions, and complaints. Are hippies and liberals bad? Maybe, maybe not - but that case should be made without reference to "postmodernism," which can just as easily be blamed for FOX News, the Bush administration, and "reality" TV shows. - BodhiBliss Exactly!

Oxford Companion to Philosophy does not mention postmodernism as a movement in Philosophy. Rightly so. Philosophy is the love of wisdom and what postmodernism represents is anything but the love of wisdom. A world without pomo is a world in recovery, a group that does not shun postmodernism activel...

[Someone at another forum] blamed baby boomers, but more specifically hippies and LSD, for the postmodernism which he believed permeated popular culture, equated postmodern thought with liberals, not conservatives, and blamed postmodernism (and, by extension, hippies, liberals, and LSD) for every c...

Clemsy, Ephesus is probably the best preserved of ancient Roman cities, and a favorite destination for goddess-tourists. Here is a Roman copy of the Greek statue of the multi-breasted goddess Artemis from Ephesus (now in a museum in Istanbul). http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/30/Artem...
