The Postmodern Self: An Essay on Anachronism and Powerlessness

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This article examines the non-totalitarian postmodern conception of the self. It explains that the postmodern self is heterogeneous which means that it is multiple and there is 'we' rather than 'I' or 'me'. It discusses Jean-François Lyotard's The Postmodern Condition: A Report on Knowledge and the relevant works of Immanuel Kant.
