The Primary Characteristics of the Postmodern Worldview – Part I

  • One of the chief characteristics of Postmodernism is its social construction of reality.
  • Postmodernism denies the reality of absolute, objective truth that can be discovered and known by all people.
  • Because there is no absolute truth in the Postmodern worldview, societies, people groups, and individuals themselves determine what is true. Thus, the Postmodern view of truth is that it is simply a social construct (an idea determined by people).
  • This basic premise of Postmodernism has significant consequences for the rest of the Postmodern worldview and those who embrace it. We’ll discuss those consequences more in the coming week’s Fast Facts.
