Chesterton’s collection What’s Wrong With The World surprisingly does not open with “this is going to take more than one book.”. In fact, he is quite to-the-point about exactly what he thinks the problem is: Now, to reiterate my title, this is what is wrong.

    In What's Wrong with Postmodernism Norris critiques the "postmodern-pragmatist malaise" of Baudrillard, Fish, Rorty, and Lyotard. In contrast he finds a continuing critical impulse -- an "enlightened or emancipatory interest" -- in thinkers like Derrida, de Man, Bhaskar, and Habermas/5(3). Thus, postmodernism remains vague. Professor Ihab Hassan was one of the first to write about postmodernism. Hassan says, “I know less about postmodernism today than I did thirty years ago [], when I began to write about it No consensus obtains on what postmodernism really means.” [Hassan, Postmodernism to Postmodernity].

This was originally published in The Banner, Appp. ) Postmodernism is all the rage these days. Plenty of books and articles have been written about it.

Students take classes about it. Even The Banner published an article on it last year (Jan. 31, ). Many Christians. He's also a trenchant critic of postmodernism and 'identity politics'; academic disciplines like women's studies and sociology have been corrupted by Neo-Marxist ideology, he thinks.
