Postmodernizm jako ideologia

Janusz Filipkowski




Postmodernism is a concept characterized by distrust of theories and ideologies and by the drawing of attention to conventions. Think of postmodernism rejects the authority of reason and views all claims to objective truth to be dangerous. Postmodern philosophers regard claims to objective and universal truth as intolerant and uninformed. For influential postmodern thinkers, truth is political and created by “belief communities”, not discovered rationally and objectively. However an ideology is a set of ideas that constitutes one’s goals, expectations, and actions. An ideology can be thought of as a comprehensive vision, as a way of looking at things (worldview), as in common sense, or a set of ideas proposed by the dominant class of a society to all members of this society. The central theme of postmodernism is that there is no such thing as certainty. As a result, postmodernism rejects big meta-narratives which claim that there are absolute truths, i.e. ideologies and belief systems as the Right and the Left. Postmodernism declares an end to all ideology but in essence postmodernism is contemporary ideology consisting of relativism and deny any validity to several concept like objectivity, Truth, Goods and Beautiful.
