Lecture on postmodernism by Stephen Hicks

Postmodernism is a literary theory of extreme skepticism that denies reality and objective truth. It is the brainchild of Leftist, European philosophers in the 1950’s but draws from 19th century German philosophers such as Immanuel Kant. Despite the political Left traditionally being about reason, science and equal opportunity, instead the Left has embraced anti-science, anti-reason positions such as environmentalist groups lying about genetically modified foods, climate change, medical testing on animals and vaccines.

In this 2014 lecture hosted by Sweden’s free market think tank TIMBRO, author of the book Explaining Postmoderninsm and Rockford College philosophy professor Dr. Stephen Hicks gave a short lecture along with Q and A about the ideological underpinnings and influence among the academic and political Left of postmodernism.
