Postmodernism vs keith

keith hates post modernism.
But I think this may have a vaguely similar sort of misunderstanding to it as the final cause debate mentind a few posts ago. basically the postmodernists who claim that physical objects are socially constructed are correct in a sense that the concept is defined in that way and not correct in that the object exists seperate from their particular social definition of it (although possibly not independant of external objects but that quantum physics). Thios means that peopel aregue past each other baised on their different frames of reference each thinking the otherside is an idiot and getting al sanctimonious.
I think the postmodernist approach as charachterized in the article is by far the less essential one but it is not a meaningless approach in various contexts.
