All of this discussion of postmodernism, seems out of focus. This is not
going to be a long drawn out tractatus, I simply want to ask some questions: Is
the discussion of feminist and postmodern theory relevant? Does the feminist paradigm
affect the postmodern perspective in such a way that it should be isolated
from the paradigm as a whole? Postmodernism dwells upon questions of context,
thus, the feminist perspective must itself be analyzed, not used to shape one's perceptions.
I don't know. Remember there is no absolute truth in any argument.
I'm just trying to open a new can of worms.
