Night School: Post-modernism Rules, OK

“Simplifying to the extreme, I define postmodern as incredulity toward metanarratives,” wrote Jean-Franscois Lyotard in his work The Postmodern Condition: A Report on Knowledge. His insights into the place of the university in modern society, his attempts to think about ethics in the wake of this 'incredulity' and finally, the demands his work makes on us as readers – and the pleasure of that struggle – are all in the mix in this week’s episode. Sean Matthews, a literary scholar, leads the discussion.
