An information sublime: Knowledge after the Postmodern condition
MetadataShow full item record
It is now 30 years since the publication of Jean- François Lyotard’s influential report on the state of knowledge in industrialized nations, The Postmodern Condition. In it he argued against totalizing systems of thought, such as Marxism, and argued instead for a plurality of ideas supported by the free flow of infor- mation through computer networks. It is a measure of the report’s farsightedness that its proposals raise few objections, even eyebrows, today.
