Peter Place Parrett YM 210 5/12/2009 A Primer on Postmodernism A Primer on Postmodernism was an interesting book to say the least. The content of this piece of literature deals with the history of postmodernism, beginning with architecture and star trek. Granted the title of the first chapter threw me off greatly and would have deferred me all together if I had not been reading for a class. Although the title isn’t the best way to judge a chapter, I read on. I had trouble relating to the Star Trek parts in the writing simply because I was never a fan, nor had any genuine interest in the subject matter, therefore losing my attention for the second time. Nonetheless, I pressed on, in hopes that it will only get better as I read deeper into the book. “Finally, the postmodern mind no longer accepts the Enlightenment belief that knowledge is objective. Knowledge cannot be merely objective, say the post moderns, because the universe is not mechanistic and dualistic, but rather history, relational and personal”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
