a thought on ''postmodernism"

"From my viewpoint, I remain quite suspicious of the term 'postmodernism'.... because the precursor term, 'modern' itself, has not simply been used to devalue the cultures of oppressed and exploited people, but also has failed to deeply illumine the internal complexities of these cultures. Under these circumstances, there is little reason to hold out hope for a new term 'postmodernism' as applied to the practices of an oppressed people."
