Online Submission, National Forum of Applied Educational Research Journal v23 n1-2 p72-77 2009-2010
The purpose of this article is to examine how Postmodernism and the "Ways of Knowing Through the Realms of Meaning" (2007) by Dr. William Kritsonis can be implemented in our schools with strategic planning. The six realms of meanings are symbolics, empirics, esthetics, synnoetics, ethics, and synoptics. Postmodernism's primary significance is its power to account for vast changes in our society, cultures, education and economy as we move from a production to a consumption society. Postmodernism has captured interest because it involves a stunning critique of modernism.
