 From the Questions Answered column in The Times, 6 July 2007:


Can anyone define what postmodern thought is?

Postmodernists believe there is no knowledge or truth, only 
“discourse”. However, they also tend to hold that modish left-wing 
views are absolutely true and that anyone who opposes these should be 
persecuted.

Andrew M. Chisholm, Thames Ditton, Surrey

I was recently told that Modernism was the age of reason, in which any 
religious beliefs were decried as being irrational. Postmodern thought, 
however, takes things to the opposite extreme, in that it regards all 
values as being equally valid. In other words Christianity is placed on 
a par with those who think there is a man in the moon, which is made of 
green cheese.
