Ecosocialist Notebook

The best sentence I’ve read about postmodernism

Descent-into-DiscourseApropos too many of the articles and books that I’ve been reading lately:

“Much writing that appears under the designer label of poststructuralism/postmodernism is, quite bluntly, crap, a kind of academic wordplaying with no possible link to anything but the pseudo-intellectualized ghettoes of the most self-promotionally avant-garde enclaves of that bastion of protectionism, the University.”

—Bryan Palmer.
Descent Into Discourse. (1990)

Amen.
