Stuart Jeffries: Everything, All The Time, Everywhere

41 min listen

In This Episode

This week’s Book Club podcast addresses one of the most misunderstood and vilified concepts in the culture wars: postmodernism. How did this arcane theoretical position escape from academia to become a social media talking point? What the hell is it anyway? What does Jeff Koons have to do with Foucault? Is postmodernism out to destroy capitalism, or is it capitalism incarnate? And what comes after postmodernism? Stuart Jeffries – author of Everything, All The Time, Everywhere: How We Became Postmodern – puts it all in quotes for us.
