Of Postmodernism, Spins, and What The Hell

Dear All,
I am finding these discussions fascinating and very helpful! For what it is
worth I would like to share the very simple distinction made for me by my
English Literature lecturer between Modernism and Post-modernism.

Modernism is belief that there is a kernel of truth to be found, for example
like the pip in the middle of an apricot. It is the same for all and involves
a systematic and dedicated search.

Postmodernism is more like unpeeling the layers of an onion.

These metaphors helped me at the time. What thoughts/comments?
