For the Record

Postmodernism is a movement in the arts, architecture and literature.

Postmodernity (pronounced so it rhymes with maternity) is the perceived shift away from modernity and rationalism that has given birth to the apparent ‘contradictions’ of our current Western culture.

It drives me nuts when people in general (and Christians in specific, especially supposed philosophy experts) use these words interchangeably. Postmodernism was a very intentional development in the arts and literature.
