Postmodern thinking:
Postmoderns have no worldview (except the view that there is no correct worldview)
Truth is found in the community, not in the individual.
Postmodernism rejects ontological truth and metanarritives. (in other words it accepts relativism)
“Post-modernism signals the death of such ‘metanarratives’ whose secretly terroristic function is to ground and legitimate the illusion of a “universal” human history. Terry Eagleton
Jean-Francois Lyotard Simplifying to the extreme I define postmodernism as incredulity toward metanarrative.
The goal of postmodern philosophy and scholarship is to “deconstruct” beliefs such as Christianity—to find out where it came from and its various parts—to destroy its violent metanarrative—to make it meaningless.
With postmodernism, the difference between truth and fiction has nearly vanished.
