    1. The End of History 29 January 2014 The title of the book that I read was called Postmodernism for Beginners but it appears that this is the same book, though the edition that I read was published in 1995 and I suspect that there are a number of differences between the two editions The problem though is that this book was published 20 years ago so, surprisingly, it has become dated What the book is actually exploring is what the thought pattern of the Western World was at the time, and the thing [...]


    2. I ve heard said that styles recycle themselves, and to a degree there s truth in it In the realm of ideas, art, architecture, fashion, musicI think there s evidence one example, my young friends are often obsessed with the eighties, which seems strange to me, having lived through them And there s a whole slew of bands who sound like they re trying to get back there via technologized whining, a substance that can apparently be, recorded, distilled, teased and or feathered and used for time travel [...]


    3. I don t think anyone would expect a small book full of cartoons and the world Introducing on the cover to be scholarly This book succeeds in giving someone who is new to the subject a toe hold, just enough for further learning to build on As a person advances in the topic they can develop their own opinions on the areas of the book that were written in a biased fashion.The world makes a little sense after reading this book.


    4. I recently read and enjoyed Introducing Philosophy but Introducing Postmodernism was awful Maybe it s postmodernism itself that s awful but I suspect it s this book To be fair, the first third of the book discusses postmodernism in art where it came from, how it evolved, how it fit in culturally in the US, Europe and Russia although it s supposed to be a global movement, apparently nowhere else in the world produces art That was fine, it was well explained and fairly interesting Knowing a little [...]


    5. I find postmodernism an extremely convoluted and pretentious word to describe stuff that s out of the norm I thought this book would help me understand the movement It did nothing but confuse me further into a world of confusion I might just leave postmodernism for the intellectuals who understand it It s not overly interesting or thought provoking it s like a crazy acid trip.


    6. It s somewhat embarrassing, but it seems that I ve gone and got hooked on this series It s great for people like me who combine a thirst for knowledge with a attention span of a mosquito.


    7. For a guide , this book certainly makes some loaded statements about postmodernism, most notably that neo Romanticism is a cure for postmodernism Appignanesi takes a decidedly anti postmodernist stance, especially in his critique of the replacement of reality by hyperreality something which I personally have taken for granted, having been born in the 90s However, objectivity is a thing of the past, and there is no point trying to write an objective summary of a cultural condition, especially whe [...]


    8. This subject does my head in All that meta neo epistemic cyber hyper reality and everything that goes along with it It s too much, really If it s true, like they say at the end of the book, that The only cure for postmodernism is the incurable illness of romanticism , then give me Goethe or give me death Ach, wie herrlich leuchtet Mir die Natur



    9. Still confused but this book provided a lot of things to think about Well put together and worth reading Good introduction as always with this series.


    10. Postmodernism, a Graphic Guide begins by noting people s discomfort with postmodern visual arts It goes on at some length about art movements that exemplify aspects of PoMo, such as altering realism to include the uncertainty principle that is, that something can be seen simultaneously from different viewpoints cubism simplifying the human form to geometry disposing of the fetish of scared uniqueness because original works of art can be reproduced en masse through photography and the one many pe [...]


    11. this guide is absolute s t it s very bad at explaining postmodernism as a phenomenon because all it covers is history of 20th century, without any conclusion whatsoever it s incredibly pretentions and artsy it constantly calls cyberspace a different reality and art a simulacrum of reality instead of explaining in logical terms see Ludwig Wittgenstein for what I mean It keeps making statements without explaining, talks about how we are demolishing the past and how we are accelerating with 0 defin [...]


    12. I ve been wanting to exercise my Philosophy muscles for a while as I m a bit out of practice since leaving university, so I gave this a go to try and get me back into the swing of things It started off really well, talking about modernist art and post modern theory, but then it descended into the typical 90s post modern cliches, banging on about Robocop ,Madonna and Cyberspace , oh and talking a load of absolute rubbish about videogames There is not a Murder button in Mortal Kombat, you divs.


    13. I picked this up in a charity shop and it was a quick read The first section on post modern art was really helpful, the second on theory got a bit spooky and indecipherable, and the final section on history was also helpful up to a point that point clearly being 1995 It didn t make me want to read on the subject but I think that is a success rather than a failure of the book.




    14. I m not sure when I first heard the term postmodernism , but in 1984 I read Frederic Jameson s famous essay on the subject and soon afterwards Malcolm Bradbury s book on the American novel where he called a lot of the 1960s novelists that I had recently been reading postmodernist It was a hip, cutting edge term, but by the early 1990s it was commonly thrown around in the media and had become a little glib It seems to have faded away in the Twenty first Century I can t remember where or when I pi [...]


    15. Popmodernismi on k site, joka ehk rupeaa pikkuhiljaa tuntumaan osoittain vanhanaikaiselta, mutta johon edelleen t rm k sitteen varsinkin usein On sanomattakin selv , ett 1900 luvun j lkipuolen historiaa niin voimakkaasti muokannut k site on k ytt j lleen selv , mutta mit Postmodernimilla sitten oikein tarkoitetaan Richard Appignanesin ja kumppaneitten yritys selitt k sitteen monimuotoiset koukerot taviksille on kunnianhimoinen, joskin osittain tuhoon tuomittu yritys Kunnianhimoinen siksi, ett k [...]


    16. I don t get the purpose of this book For a complete novice, it definitely is NOT a useful introduction or a guide, as it s hard to follow the authors often jump from one concept theory buzzword to the next with little relation between the two , it rarely explains complex and vague terms and notions in a manner anywhere near sufficient, and many of the examples offered are so scantily presented that they serve to confuse rather than elucidate Indeed, for an introduction this book is almost qrote [...]


    17. Theory in any discipline can be extremely difficult to grasp Bring in postmodernism and many students are completely lost This book helped me understand the postmodernism movement when I was first introduced to historical and archaeological theory Appignanesi and Garratt answer such questions as, what on earth is false postmodernism Eclectic postmodernism The Anthropic Principle Introducing Postmodernism is a great companion to any theoretical textbook compilation of works for an undergraduate t [...]


    18. BAGAIMANA untuk memahami post modernism alias pascamoden yang tak punya garis permulaan sejarah yang nyata, kerangka yang penuh kekeliruan dan tempoh tamat yang tampak tak berkesudahan dalam sebuah buku nipis yang dipenuhi grafik Inilah cabaran untuk memahami worldview Barat yang datang dengan apa saja saluran atas nama globalisasi dan kini perang global ke atas keganasan Selepas memporak perandakan politik ekonomi sosial budaya pemikiran masyarakat Eropah dan Anglo Saxon, ia sedang memamah nega [...]


    19. This book is pretty interesting I thought I knew what postmodernism was but this book made me realize I actually have no idea As an introduction, I m not sure how good it is It s not easy to read I had to google some stuff because his explanations weren t clear or extensive enough I disliked how he introduces a phrase once and then immediately begins using it It s pretty confusing Nonetheless, I learned loads It s a good introduction in the sense that it shows a lot of sides of postmodernism Def [...]


    20. I read in Bahasa this review is written in BahasaMenarik Karena sejauh ini, aku hanya tau istilah posmodern tanpa memahami apa makna dari kata itu Yang membuat aku tercengang, apalagi kalau bukan pemaparan mengenai hal hal atau isu berkaitan dengan posmodern yang ternyata sudah selama ini kita temui.Kaget juga karena beberapa peristiwa yang aku kira hanya ada secara fenomena, ternyata bisa ditelaah dengan menggunakan teori dan hasilnya adalah peristiwa tersebut sebagai tanda dari masyakarat posm [...]


    21. i d hate to belittle this book by merely calling it a comic book aka, graphic novel , b c it is definitely much than that if anyone is looking for an in depth taste of the ever so complicated topic of postmodernism, here is a book for you the cartoons of all notable figures and works of art in the postmodern movement segue transition see, my confusion is proof of the knowledge i ve already gained in the postmodern debacle aids the reader not in verbose languages but thoughtful visual representa [...]


    22. There is a Chomsky essay where he basically calls Postmodern theory a bunch of rubbish There is something to postmodern theroy but, like Chomsky stated, someone else probably said it much clearly After reading this book I can believe it to be true Most of the second half of this book describes the problems of our modern world and it s false reality rather than much on postmodern theory, maybe because there isn t too much to say I ll probably read postmodern stuff but I m definitely not rushing [...]


    23. I didn t think this was as good as some of the other Introducing books that I ve read, but it s probably because the subject matter is pretty vague and complicated I think I sort of understand a bit what postmodernism is about but I m also very confused I don t think I would recommend this to somebody as an _introduction_ to p m I may read about it or I may decide that p m is sort of a mind f k waste of time.


    24. A pesar de que muchos piensen que leer libros para newbies te convierte en uno, creo que son una buena manera de agilizar los conocimientos que fuimos adquiriendo picoteando apuntes aqui y all Me pareci muy bien condensado y completo, y a la luz de leer en paralelo ensayos por ejemplo tener a Lyotard al lado para comparar se nota que no pifian Genial compendio muy recomendable, queridos mortales.


    25. What the heck does postmodernism mean anyways From my university days Not sure I can define it even now, my little brain is mocked, laughed at, arghh It makes me feel a bit better that somebody wrote an article for a postmodernist magazine and it got rave reviews even though the author purposely wrote in meaningless gobbledygook I guess the message is use big words, if nobody understands al the easier to claim to be an intellectual.


    26. Prepare to be taken into a whirlwind of sorts dissecting Postmodernism down to its meticulous details Analyzing the theory itself within a socio political globalised culturally impacted range You re going to get introduced to modernist and postmodernist art movements, philosophies, politics From Warhol to Foucault to Derrida, Baudrillard, to Madonna and Heidegger It s got it all The graphic illustration is eye candy.
