The Sentient Meat Crafting illusory Identities


Postmodernism (constructionalism) rests on the premise, that there is no 'real' reality, no one 'truth', in so forth negating itself.

Postmodernism expressed more explicitly still in deconstruction. Each author's meaning is unique to himself, goes the underlying premise. The text is therefore open to fresh analysis and commentary issuing from the equally solipsistic world in the head of the reviewer. The reviewer is in turn subject to deconstruction, as well as the re- viewer of the reviewer, and so on in infinite regress. As expressed in "There is nothing outside the text" by Jacques Derrida. At least, that is what I think he meant. If the radical postmodernist premise is correct, we can never be sure what he meant.
