From Modern Closure to Postmodern Openings. Editorial

Bogdan POPOVENIUC

Abstract


Postmodernism is a literary invention, a very creative and expressive artistic current widespread across domains of philosophy, the arts, and architecture. Its main intellectual characteristics are a general relativism - from epistemology to moral - and the promotion of subjectivism by criticism of modernity's pillars of universalism and objectivity. Post-modernity is the alleged correspondent state of the society and culture we live in. But the state of a society is other than the critique of that society. It is said that we live in a post-modern era, and many acclaim this brand because it supposedly represent a new state of social evolution characterized by a free individual, liberation of the emotions and expressions from the reason constraints and so on.
