    je ne sais rien

    A fine book that espouses a Post-Modern philosophy, akin to Baudrillard, Derrida and others. Most people who come to this book, do so because they would like to know what Post-Modernism is. Well, a definition would require some sort of truth, some sort of objective character (rather than agreement between the speakers), and, well, according to Post-Modernism, there probably isn¿t any (so long as we have an understanding of time, and the translation of the perceptual into the conceptual, and how mistranslation is at any time possible, and without guarantee.) However, you can still get your own idea, your own truth, to use Nietzsche¿s expression, of what Post-Modernism is. That, I suppose, would be the main reason to read this book, rather than to appear chic and cultured, and to know about everything that is in vogue intellectually, which can motivate many people to read many a book. ¿To be edified without ostentation.¿
