Postmodernism is a second World War movement that is the natural issue of its progenitor, modernism. That is, where early twentieth century and post First World War 'modern' intellectuals held and it was their privilege and duty to restore order to a fragmented and chaotic world, post Second World War thinkers hold that since world order is an unachievable and therefore fruitless ambition, all humankind can do is make the best of what they have. This book sets out to show that postmodern consciousness is not a recent phenomenon, but, as a critique of the fragility of the claims made by exponents of the notion of metanarratives or 'universal concepts' it is evident in the philosophy of the eighteenth century Italian philosopher, Giambattista Vico.
