Post Modernism: POMO


What Is POMO?

  • POMO is a rebellion against STRUCTURALISM.
  • STRUCTURALISM is MODERNISM's tendency to sort all human activity into huge, simple pigeon holes called METANARRATIVES .
  • A POMO is also a person who advocates POSTMODERNISM.
  • A POMO wants to DECONSTRUCT a metanarrative, i.e. to explain the subject matter in a more true-to-life way.
  • The contents of a metanarrative is referred to as a TEXT.

Why is POMO not listed in as an epistemology, ontology, etc?

  • POMO has too broad a sweep to be pigeonholed in this way.
