The Postmodern Condition

February 24, 2019 - A report on postmodernism and the future of knowledge in a postmodern world.

This is a mind-blowing book that is profound as a tool for historical analysis and prophetic as a telescope into the future. If you are interested in philosophy, computer science, business, politics/government, or basically any intellectual endeavour, I highly recommend this book. Below are a few notes/quotes from the book:

  • Postmodernism is defined as an “incredulity toward meta-narratives”1
  • This work notes that the role of knowledge is changing and becoming a commodity protected and owned by governments and/or cooperations2
