'Primitive'[edit]

Primitive is an outdated reference to non-state level societies, such as small scale horticulturalists and hunter-gathers. As such the term needs to be replaced, however, I cannot think of a good replacement term at this time that wouldn't be a mouthful. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.254.52.22 (talk) 22:23, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Explanation[edit]

There doesn't seem to be a part that explains what post modernism is or how to identify it. It doesn't have any examples which could help with this. Sdmitch16 (talk) 19:01, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Criticism Section[edit]

I thought that for a page on an important philosophical and cultural movement the reader would be spared the argument that it 'is complex so therefore does not exist'. Do articles on Existentialism or Structuralism have criticism sections that present such base and nonsubstantive arguments? I think not. KingHiggins (talk) 12:54, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
