Post-modernism as Philosophy and Post-modernism as Culture

  • Matthew McManus
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Classical Liberalism book series (PASTCL)


This chapter analyses the concept of post-modernism, framing an analytical distinction between sceptical post-modern theory and authors who analyse post-modernism as a cultural condition. It also looks at the reaction to post-modernism from some conservative authors, focusing on Jordan Peterson as an exemplar. It concludes by situating this book in the tradition of authors who treat post-modernism as a culture.
