On Postmodernism

Image

“The temper of the postmodern often proves wanting in courage and consistency.  The truth of no truths becomes, inevitably, truth: a way of naming being, language, and culture that guards the boundaries of thought against claims it has not validated.

A still more radical postmodernism, though, would free itself from the illusion that thought can occupy a place of mere critical suspicion.  Critique is never merely doubt, but always a vantage (and advantage); it is always already principled, already dependent upon firm metaphysical assumptions, already a transcendental surveillance that has determined in advance the limits of every story’s credibility.”

This quote is from the Intro to “The Beauty of the Infinite: The Aesthetics of Christian Truth” by David Bentley Hart
