#49) On what's after postmodernism: holistic pragmatic clarification of concepts

62 minutes

Contradictions, obfuscations, and lack of clarity have not only seized so much of academia (as my friend Heather Lockheart brilliantly discusses in her thesis on the topic) but also it has led to the emboldening of blatant racism from President Trump and his supporters, along with a wider embrace of immorality in general. Trump's TV lawyer Rudolph Giuliani has gone so far as arguing that "truth is not truth." Where did this postmodern way of thinking come from? Can we blame Nietzsche? Although postmodernism clearly leads to problematic modes of thought, does it raise any valid points? Is there anything "after" or "beyond" postmodernism? I say "yes!" and that includes some iteration of a holistic pragmatic clarification of concepts.
