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)


As a lay person, I could not glean from the summery here what the basic premise of the idea of post-modernism is. Th summery seems to only include information about the history of the concept. Can the article be changed to include an explanation of the idea? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 141.225.74.123 (talk) 16:27, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
