Modernism Versus Postmodernism

Do you think you're modern or postmodern?


Amanda said...

Can I be both. Just by having a blog I'm 'postmodern' compared to many of my friends but then I'm modern too with all my technology and being married to a computer nut doesn't help!

Modern, I think.

Theologically I identify with Dispensationalism and the Fundamentalist movement that is very much part of modernity.

I am optimistic about capitalism, technology and science.

I dislike nostalgia about the past and tend to think that the past is overrated.

I would much rather live in a modern house than a more historic building.

I think one could make a pretty good case that Late Modernity or Advance Modernity is a better term than Postmodernity.

That's a loaded question! (hehe)

I have serious problems with deconstruction but Modern thinking has to advance.

Kitty Cheng said...

Amanda, I think many people are a bit of both too.

Kitty Cheng said...

Yes interesting comments Matthew. Can see clearly that you are modern :)

Why is it that you think Late Modernity or Advance Modernity is a better term than Postmodernity?
Is it because modernity is still very much a part of this day and age?

Kitty Cheng said...

Kc, I agree that deconstruction is problematic. But how do people change that?
