I can t help but think the main reason this book remains in currency is because it is widely regarded as the locus classicus for a definition and analysis of the term postmodernism which Lyotard did not invent Nor in my mind did he add much to European culture s self understanding of the broad cultural tendencies amalgamated under that porous banner Lyotard loosely defines postmodernism as a suspicion of meta narratives arguing that ideas can no longer be afforded legitimacy purely by reference to external narratives such as science or history This is not to say that scientific or historical claims cannot be legitimate but they cannot appeal to legitimacy by virtue of being formulated in the language of science or history Legitimacy is the name of the game for Lyotard and his borderline wholesale rejection of legitimacy altogether places him suarely in opposition to Juergen Habermas who had already attempted to ground intersubjective legitimacy in his theory of communicative action at the time this book was written Habermas s response to this challenge was to my knowledge to ignore it altogether And rightfully so as Lyotard s analysis is weak One can easily assent to the trivial observation that the last two centuries have exemplified a crisis of faith in social metaphysical and religious understanding One could fruitfully gain as much from reading Nietzsche s shorter and better Twilight of the Idols written a century earlier But Lyotard relies too much on what I find to be an irrational and to some degree aesthetic appeal to our intuitions and that is entirely inadeuate to deal with the problem of science Lyotard critiues the epistemic na vet of scientists of the logical positivist ilk arguing that a correspondence theory of truth presupposes privileged access to the world In his critiue he struggles to replace correspondence with criteria of performativity derived from Wittgenstein s infamous language games At this point in my mind his argument breaks down On the basis of general laws extrapolated from observation scientists are able to launch robotic craft and fly them 300 million miles to Mars and then to land them so gently that the robotic rovers within are not damaged Imagine trying to land something carefully and accurately at a distance of 300 million miles On the basis of that example alone I will contest that something rather like correspondence is in fact occurring in the sciences That kind of predictive power cannot be reduced to uestions of legitimacy without altogether losing sight of the basic facts of what is occurring It strikes me as ridiculous even to try This is not to deny that naive realism should be problematized but one needs a scalpel not a sledgehammer As long as there are graduate students who need a citation for their first mention of the term postmodernism this book will circulate but as an account of the postmodern condition it presents a weak attempt to account for complex issues

The needs of the most underprivileged should not be used as a system regulator as a matter of principle since the means of satisfying them is already known their actual satisfaction will not improve the system s performance but only increase its expenditures The only counterindication is that not satisfying them can destabilize the whole It is against the nature of force to be ruled by weakness But it is in its nature to induce new reuests meant to lead to a redefinition of the norms of life In this sense the system seems to be a vanguard machine dragging humanity after it dehumanizing it in order to rehumanize it at a different level of normative capacity The technocrats declare that they cannot trust what society designates as its needs they know that society cannot know its own needs since they are not variables independent of the new technologies Such is the arrogance of the decision makers and their blindnessI really want to be sympathetic to postmodernism but I don t understand what it s trying to say What use is a prescription if it is illegible Too often this philosophy seems the solipsism of a mute schizophrenic The best I can gather it is really just the age old argument of relativism against absolutism and I think the Sophists did a better job with that argument Socrates be damnedLyotard is readable than most of the postmoderns I ve come across even so I could stand to read this one a time or two And as with all philosophy I ve read this only gets interesting where the rubber meets the road ie politics

review Ô La Condition postmoderneRapport sur le savoir ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Jean-François Lyotard ´ 7 Free download This book explores science and technology makes connections between these epistemic cultural and political trends and develops profound insights into the nature of our post. Well before Big Data there were ominous whispers That is how I recall this book s bark at my door fear tinged with the excitement of change Sometime between the collapse of the Wall and the Towers I was forever fearful of a mis step The world was tumultuous and I lacked all grace I was late to the Theory party I was blind drunk on my Nietzsche sort of mumbled through the grotesue parts of Foucault though it was his biographies that have resonated with Derrida and the Rhizome Twins D and G just too cool for school Out of that rave this text resonated It simply asked theoretically what can we adhere towards lacking a legitimate metanarrative we are orphans without a heritage or metaphysical hope Of course it was stagecraft we readers of Lyotard weren t being hunted in streets nor blasted by unmanned weapon platforms The Postmodern Condition is a placeholder It works best temporarily Planned ignoring is suitable strategy after the fact
