|Postmodernism has emerged as a critical cultural, political and intellectual concept and has significantly altered our understanding of every discipline from architecture to ethics, and history to politics.|
This new Encyclopedia of Postmodernism is structured with biographical entries on all the key contributors to the postmodernism debate, including Mikhail Bakhtin, Pierre Bourdieu, Jacques Derrida, Jurgen Habermas and Wittgenstein. Providing an all-encompassing and welcome addition to the field, the Encyclopedia contains entries on foundational concepts of postmodernism which have revolutionized thinking in every intellectual discipline. Entries include: canonicity; deconstruction; grammatology; historicism; intertextuality; modernism; semiotics. Terminology and concepts are drawn from right across the disciplines from anthropology, sociology, linguistics and geography to film, French, gay and lesbian and critical legal studies.
