Abstract:

"Drawing on recent work in hermeneutics, on the pragmatism of Richard Rorty, and on the philosophical writings of Nietzsche and Heidegger, Vattimo aims to redefine postmodernism by reexamining its juncture with modernism. He argues that the postmodern condition is linked to the evolution of mass media and the diffusion of communication systems. But he disputes the notion that this development will produce a more enlightened, self-conscious, or "transparent" society. Book jacket."--Jacket.
