Postmodern theory also rejects modern assumptions of social coherence and notions of causality in favour of multiplicity, plurality, fragmentation, and indeterminacy. In addition, postmodern theory abandons the rational and unified subject postulated by much modern theory in favour of a socially and linguistically decentred and fragmented subject.

Postmodern Performance – Opposing The Aesthetic (An Introduction) Theatre Articles Postmodernism, particularly in the theatre, has no precise definition and it is increasingly obvious that the theories of postmodernism and postmodern theory are dependent on what the individual perceives the postmodern to be. Postmodernism is a theoretical approach that arose in the s to explain an historical period, post-modernity, which is generally accepted to have begun in the late s and early s. This is a period related to the Cold War and social upheaval in many parts of the world. The postmodernism theoretical approach is difficult to define and delineate.

General Introduction to the Postmodern. POSTMODERNISM POSES SERIOUS CHALLENGES to anyone trying to explain its major precepts in a straightforward fashion.
