Postmodernism is dead. Reflexivity is not . . . at its best, POMO never
achieved more than ideology, incoherence and some understanding that
the observer is as much a part of the observation as the observed . . .
and may actually be the system. There is some value in that, but the
entire pomo phenomena should be studied scientifically . . . now wouldn't
that be twist in deconstructing the deconstructionists?
