Postmodern conundrum

21st April 2006 at 01:00
* Modern = Human whereas Postmodern = Anti-human. Dennis Hayes obviously likes what he knows and knows what he likes. For him, scientific rationality would appear to be the key approach to knowledge creation.

There are, of course, many other ways of coming to know the world, so one hopes that Dennis's student teachers are in no way constrained by his own pet theoretical preferences.
