Postmodern critique has changed the discussions of sociology, literature, philosophy, and political theory by pressing feminist and multiculturalist versions of egalitarian liberalism or progressivism in a radical, anti-Eurocentric direction. Explore some of the ideas—both leftist and conservative—behind postmodernism in politics, as put forth by Cornel West, Michel Foucault, Gayatri Spivak, and others.
