Conclusion

Abstract

Kramer concludes that contemporary practices generally don’t express relativist forms of postmodernism. Attitudes based on “How-I-Feel” dominate in some areas of contemporary individualism and cyber-culture, but not in conceptions of truth. The evidence in ethics, politics, and faith is more mixed, even though we continue to access tradition’s and modernity’s un-postmodern limits on self-indulgence. Despite consensus in areas such as human rights, enough moral and ontological uncertainty exists, especially in the lack of agreement on ethics, to force us to speak of postmodernity as a new era distinguishable from modernity.
