Postmodernism is a broad movement that developed in the mid- to late 20th century across philosophy, the arts, architecture, and criticism, marking a departure from modernism. Some social critics have attempted to explain the postmodern condition in terms of the historical and social milieu which spawned it. By Daniel Salberg, Robert Stewart, Karla Wesley and Shannon Weiss. Postmodernism has its origins as an eclectic social movement originating in aesthetics, architecture and philosophy (Bishop 1996). In architecture and art, fields which are distinguished as the oldest claimants to the name, postmodernism originated in the reaction against abstraction in painting and the International Style in architecture (Callinicos 1990: 101).

John McGowan brings a fresh perspective to ongoing debates about the political implications of postmodernist thought and the relationship of intellectuals to contemporary culture. In addition to providing a comprehensive overview of the philosophical context of postmodernism, he considers the kinds of freedom and oppositional politics that are possible under postmodern conditions.
He covers the bases but his style is unbelievably and vexingly abstract.
Although most of the 'postmodern' debates are over and Derrida, Foucault etc are no longer big intellectual rock stars, McGowan's analysis/critique/appreciation of those and other thinkers is, well after the curtain has drawn on the seventies and eighties, still absorbing. The train of influence from Kant-Nietszche etc on Post Modern thought, is illuminating, and grounds post modern thought in a way it was never able to do so itself. A de-glamorized Derrida is strangely easier to read these days, his debt to certain modern philosophical streams more evident, the best of his thought still engaging and relevant, and McGowan helps us through that. But, ironically (for Derrida), through the privileging of the written over the spoken word, and an openness (in the absence of his byzantine and cryptic verbal maintanance of deconstructive rock star status in the cause of the unnamed revolution of differance that even he knew was an impossiblity) to the deconstruction of his own thought, McGowan makes Derrida bit less mystical and more the closet metaphysician that he was. A man looking for meaning, whilst seeming to eliminate the basis on which we have understood meaning to mean. Actually, that's postmodernism. RIP. At least it was still looking.
