The Postmodern Terms – Postmodernity and Postmodernism

Krzysztof Kielkiewicz

Abstract


The vocabulary of the current epoch includes the term postmodern. However,  postmodern embraces two related, but distinguished terms – Postmodernity and Postmodernism. Although both of them refer to the same era, they cannot be used interchangeably. The postmodern condition appears as very colourful and liberal among most areas of social life. This paper addresses linguistic postmodern demarcation and explains the postmodern terms with reference to the context of its functioning, along with its time frames, philosophy and its most meaningful representatives. It identifies Postmodernism with its influence on the spheres of culture, science and religion. It presents how spirituality finds its place in the new context of separation from the religious domain.
