Wouldn't this be considered a combination of both postmodernism and remodernism?

  • Not as Virilio speaks of it. Perhaps an interesting model would be the computer: as the personal computer is to Postmodernism - the supercomputer is to Hypermodernism (its links with an intensified rationality and the Military Industrial Complex. This all changes when you start to think of the supercomputer in the context of distributed computing projects (BOINC et al.) --Damonzucconi (talk) 20:24, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Error, Coco[edit]

'Postmodernity is meant to describe a condition of total emergence from Modernity and its faith in progress and improvement in empowering the individual.' None of the best known theorists of postmodernity (Lyotard, Derrida, Baudrillard, Jameson etc.) have described it as a break with modernity, but rather as a critical supplement to it. Far from describing an emergence (with its association of shedding something), postmodernity is inextricably bound up with the conditions of modernity. (talk) 14:01, 19 February 2009 (UTC)


Would it be an idea to provide a section detailing criticisms of this theory? I'm not knowledgeable enough about the subject to do it myself, but was hoping to find one as they commonly appear in similar articles. ( (talk) 10:31, 6 April 2012 (UTC))
