with can understand the world by looking at

with Descartes a major tenet of modern
philosophy is that the world is knowable they stress objectivity and the fact
that people can understand the world by looking at it by using their senses
oftentimes though that is debated among certain philosophers there’s a general
hope and an optimism that the world could be understood and through that understanding
man could progress and they could grow and they could learn but it was that
very optimism that made way for post-modernism in the late 19th century post
modernists realized that the progress promised by the modernists was not coming
to fruition in reaction to this they reverted to a more subjective take on
philosophy post-modernism rejects absolute truth and single interpretations of
art and literature the two really ought not be compared though for all the
brilliant work that came out of the modern period and the geniuses that made
that work post-modernism is nothing more than a fad and one that in my opinion
has already begun to pass away
