Apparently, the post-modernist worldview is taking hold on some college campuses now, including Evergreen State College in Washington State.
Post-modernism replaces the scientific worldview, something like this (from Bret Weinstein): "The scientific worldview assumes that we can observe the world, and that we can understand how it works, based on basically the scientific method.
"The postmodern worldview notices that perception is not objective, and that it is impossible to bypass it as you engage the world, and therefore it wrongly concludes that whatever you come up with in your scientific method, having been filtered through a biased apparatus, is just a narrative that you’re pushing and that it is really no better than any other narrative."
So in in the equity and PC movements on college campuses now, post-modernism seems to mean that if you simply think someone is out to get you, or if you feel offended, that is just as valid as if there were actual evidence of same.
I myself DO NOT think logic and reason is the only way to understand the world, because to me there is also mystery. However the scientific method is immensely valuable, and irreplaceable within its own paradigm. So either I don't understand post-modernism very well, or it is something rather scary.
Do you have any experience with the post-modern worldview?
