Summary
  • Postmodernity as idea, critique, cultural experience, and social condition has engendered a sometimes angry, sometimes anxious debate across many disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. In Postmodernity, David Lyon provides a stimulating introduction to this contested concept and the discussions it provokes. This second edition delves more deeply into issues such as globalization and the new postmodern quest for ethics
  • Lyon describes this multilayered notion that encompasses a variety of major social and cultural changes taking place at the end of the twentieth century. Among the key processes he examines: {u2022} rapid technological change {u2022} shifting political concerns {u2022} the rise of social movements {u2022} globalization
  • Lyon discusses modernity as a social-cultural entity and questions whether it and the monolithic edifice of Enlightenment rationality and progress are disintegrating. He concludes that a new sort of society is emerging, one structured around consumers and consumption rather than workers and production
