you know the old tale about the seven blind men explaining their experience of ‘elephant,’ and no two explanations seem to have anything to do with each other? it seems that your postmodernism is not my postmodernism(!) and, of course, i’m very proud of myself for saying this, because this is a very postmodern thing to say.
i’m reading two books about post modernism, which i find resonate deeply with me:
‘what would jesus deconstruct’ by john d. caputo
‘faithful interpretation: reading the bible in the postmodern world’ by a.k.m.adam
when i talk about postmodernism, this is the part of the elephant i’m talking about.
as i read through them, with your permission and interest, i’ll expound(!) about the parts i really, really like. then you can tell me how the postmodern elephant feels totally different to you…
