Articles about Postmodernism

Postmodernism is a broad concept, encompassing many areas such as philosophy and the arts. The philosophical foundation of postmodernism is a form of radical skepticism claiming that truth does not exist…that is, that there is no single “truth” in the traditional sense, and that all viewpoints are equally valid.

Clearly, this idea is both stupid and easily countered. Unfortunately, it’s also so pervasive in modern society that, like the air around us, it seldom gets noticed. One of the most important pursuits in any religious or philosophical study is to determine what is true and what is not.

Christians should be familiar with arguments that show postmodernism – also called relativism – to be ridiculous.

Postmodernism is the idea is that reality is subjective...that there is no absolute truth, and that reality differs from person to person. The phrase "what's true for you might not be true for me" typifies a postmodern point of view.
