"Postmodernism claims that "modernity" which began with 'the Enlightenment', industrialism, Darwin and Marx, has collapsed. We now live in an endlessly 'contemporary culture' full of contested meanings. The resulting postmodern culture embodies parody, pastiche and cultural cross-over. It is a virtual world of hyperreality containing such strange phenomena as post-Holocaust amnesia, Disneyland, cyberspace, and Fukuyama's proclaimed 'end of history'."--Jacket." ;
