Abstract

The correlation problem of postmodernism and modernism is not definitely solved in philosophy. The widespread point of view on drawing a parallel between them is also interpreted differently. Some supporters of the postmodernism and modernism relationship consider that the basic conceptual theses of postmodernism were formed due to the non-viability of modernism. There are some interpretations of postmodernism, among which it is possible to note the postmodernism characteristic as a transition to something essentially different and its estimation as the continuation of modernism. The connection between postmodernism and modernism and their philosophical bases can be considered in a number of discourses, each of which discloses the various aspects of the problem. One more prism through which the parallel between postmodernism and modernism can be drawn is a dialogue where the dialogic nature of postmodernism is opposed to the monologicality of modernism. The other prism of postmodernism includes poststructuralism, and modernism is identified with structuralism. Proceeding from the above-stated, it is possible to see that “modernism” and “postmodernism” are not identical, but closely connected with each other conceptually. The given theses cause the necessity of the philosophical analysis of the given concepts, modernism and postmodernism, with regard to the different approaches and deducing the pivotal parallels between their basic regularities.
