Philosophy Night: POSTMODERNISM

Hidden Hotel


Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, Jean-François Lyotard, Jean Baudrillard,... What do these people have in common? Well, they’re commonly known as postmodern thinkers. It’s said that, in the 1970s, a bunch of poststructuralists in France developed a radical critique of modern philosophy with roots discernible in Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, and Heidegger, and became known as postmodern theorists. Postmodernism is broadly defined as a movement that developed in the mid- to late 20th century across philosophy, the arts, architecture, and criticism, marking a departure from modernism. This philosophical movement is generally known for its attitude of skepticism, irony, or even rejection toward what it describes as the grand narratives and ideologies associated with modernism, often criticizing Enlightenment rationality and focusing on the role of ideology in maintaining social, political or economic power. Postmodern thinkers frequently describe knowledge claims and value systems as contingent or socially-conditioned, framing them as products of political, historical, or cultural discourses and hierarchies. Criticisms of postmodernism are intellectually diverse, and include arguments that postmodernism promotes obscurantism, is meaningless, and adds nothing to analytical or empirical knowledge . . . Welcome to yet another interesting evening where we’re planning on discussing grand philosophical ideas on Postmodernism. This event is part of a newly-created Paris-based Cercle de Réflexion dedicated to sharing philosophical and leadership ideas that shaped and are still shaping our world! This club-like group that meets every first Thursday of the month is for anyone interested in educational discussions and resources about philosophy where you don’t need to be a graduate-level philosopher to understand it. Format: This discussion-type event will be introduced and presented by our friend and art historian, Dr. Alicja Reksc, followed by a group discussion inviting everyone's contribution to the topic. Your RSVP includes a welcome drink (glass of wine or a beer). RSVP LINK: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/123977398737/ Very few spots (COVID-19 measures): First come, first served! Refund offered only if the event is cancelled. Reminder: No-shows aren't tolerated. A No-show will get you removed from the group! RSVP LINK: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/123977398737/
