Postmodernism, is it all bad? No and Yes | #3

In this episode, we leave the Modernist world behind and enter into Postmodernism. Postmodernism can be a difficult concept to define because built within it's definition is that it's skeptical of definitions. We're going to take a look at postmodern theorists like Derrida, Lacan, Lyotard and get into the weeds a bit about what postmodern theories entail. Additionally, we'll take all of this to the neutral ground to look at the positives and negatives that emerge out of postmodern theories.

Would you like to support the efforts to bring civility back to meaningful discourse? Well, you can, and with little more than a click of a button.

  1. Subscribe/follow the podcast on whichever platform you're currently using to listen to The Neutral Ground Podcast.
  2. Leave a rating and a comment wherever applicable. This will really help get the message out to more people. Let a friend know about the podcast by emailing them or posting an episode to your social media accounts.
  3. Visit the main website for The Neutral Ground Podcast at https://theneutralgroundpodcast.com/ and send me an email or leave an audio message for me with some thoughts or questions about one of our topics. I might end up using it on the podcast for all of us to grapple with together.
  4. Buy me a cup of coffee...err...I mean Ko-Fi at https://ko-fi.com/theneutralgroundpodcast. Donations are always appreciated and are useful to help fray the costs of maintaining The Neutral Ground Podcast.
  5. Finally, and most importantly, just be kind and patient with others in conversation. Try to model for those around you the difference between conversation and debate. Debate and dialogue are not the same thing. We need more dialogue in our everyday speech, and we need to limit debate to where it is most needed and useful.

Any one of the above items is equally important to me. I am genuinely humbled and moved by the feedback I'm receiving, and the support that I'm getting from all of you. Thank you.

Sincerely,

-Joe
