About

Postmodernism is an ideology that rejects grand-narratives about the world. It challenges the notion that there can be an ‘essential truth’ outside of us, and stresses the active construction of truth.

By contrast, scientific materialism asserts that there are essential truths: namely, the truths that can be arrived at by empirical investigation.

At Prophemy, I want to take the postmodern hypothesis to its full conclusion and explore the dimension of truth which exists outside the scientific-materialist conception of it. You won’t find any rejection of science here, but rather, a more nuanced treatment of truth that I believe is better suited for the task of philosophy, religion, and politics.
