This invaluable study is the first book to systematically analyse the slippery connections between theories of postmodernity and the contemporary developments in science which are sometimes invoked in support of them. Chapters on the theory of relativity, quantum mechanics, chaos theory and cybernetics introduce these scientific developments to the lay reader, relating them in turn to chapters on the postmodern condition, the collapse of the grand narrative, the concept of disorder, and the 'immaterial'. Drawing fascinating connections between the realms of science and social science, David Channell demonstrates that both the postmodernist's simulacra and the scientist's 'anthropic principle', to take but two examples, can challenge the idea of an objective reality.
