Abstract:According to the American novelist John Barth, commenting on the term in 1980, postmodernism was essentially an elaboration of cultural modernism, a way of telling stories. By 1990, al though the term has spilled out of the boundaries of l iterary critical debate, it still carries with it this earl ier sense, but the stories are now indistinguishable from what was once assumed to be knowledge: scientific truth, ethics, law, history.
