Crisis Century class today consisted of the viewing and discussion of a documentary video about Roland Barthes, the oh-so-readable great-uncle of semiotics and postmodernism.
Ah, postmodern philosophy, that ever-inquisitive quest to question every movement that preceded it, to challenge and conquer even the most fundamental perceptions of reality and thought, hence defeating even the very idea of truth, and showing forth postmodernism’s inherently self-defeating nihilism. It’s a nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there.
Still, being in art college, it helps to be able to speak the dialect. ;)
