Re: [Kierkegaardians] Re Re: new to S. K. group too
- Yep, I didn't want to touch the modern/postmodern part of this
discussion becomes it becomes increasingly difficult to avoid speaking
in clichés. These terms have too many different meanings within too
many different fields, to the point that the word "postmodernism" has
long lost its ability to meaningfully communicate. If we limit
ourselves to philosophy, though, most commentators I'm aware of no
longer see a sharp divide between modernism and postmodernism, but see
instead postmodernism as a species of modernism. In my opinion,
postmodernism is simply romanticism after Darwin, Freud, and Marx --
there's very little ascribed to the German romantics in K's Concept of
Irony that isn't also ascribed to postmodern authors since the 1960s.
- Don -- I'll visit the group page and try to hunt down previous
responses that I thought addressed your concerns. I receive/respond
to this list via email rather than the group page, so it's unnatural
for me to include references to post numbers.
