Some Australians are taking on postmodernism.
The Weekend Australian revealed how postmodernism had infiltrated schools, often under the term Critical Literacy, raising fears that the secondary-school syllabus had been heavily politicised by the same theories that radicalised the universities in the late 1980s. The English critic Frank Kermode has argued that these theories encourage “an indifference to, and even a hostility towards, literature”.
Kermode is presumably referring to the little-known classic of postmodernist theory, Jean-François Lyotard’s Fuck Literature.
