Abstract or Introduction
Introduction to the concept of Postmodernity / Postmodernism
David Harvey asks how economic shifts can bring about cultural transformations like postmodernism. He believes in material basis of culture, and tries to explain Postmodernity as a historical-geographical condition; Marxism provides the meta-narrative behind postmodernism; it’s not so different that Marxism cannot cope with it.
For Harvey, shift in experience of time and space lies at heart of Postmodernity. Effect of a crisis of Fordist economy. It is link between economy (flexible accumulation) and culture (postmodernism).
This paper is the attempt to give an introduction to the concept of Postmodernity and Postmodernism.
