Postmodernism Explained

I've been meaning to write something on postmodernism and its role in our current political landscape (and still will, one of these days). One of my sources is Stephen Hick's Explaining Postmodernism: Skepticism and Socialism from Rousseau to Foucault. In the meantime here is a good summary from Quadrant Online.

One of the best critiques of high literary theory was done by two Australians, a philosopher and a literary gent. With a competent philosopher on the job they were not intimidated by the alleged philosophical sophistication of the pomos who have managed to bluff the philosophically naive English faculties. This summary of their work has their approval.
