Summary

Postmodernism is an important part of the cultural landscape which continues to evolve, yet the ideas and theories surrounding the subject can be diverse and difficult to understand. Fifty Postmodern Thinkers critically examines the work of fifty of the most important theorists within the postmodern movement who have defined and shaped the field, bringing together their key ideas in an accessible format. Drawing on figures from a wide range of subject areas including literature, cultural theory, philosophy, sociology and architecture those covered include:

  • John Barth
  • Umberto Eco
  • Slavoj Zizek
  • Cindy Sherman
  • John Cage
  • Jean-Francois Lyotard
  • Charles Jencks
  • Jacques Derrida
  • Homi K. Bhabha
  • Quentin Tarantino

Each entry examines the thinkers’ career, key contributions and theories and refers to their major works. A valuable resource for those studying postmodern ideas at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, this text will appeal across the humanities and social sciences.
