Postmodernist Classics
Willett, Steven J.
Academic Questions, v17 n2 p59-66 Mar 2004
Classicist Steven J. Willett is amazed at the president of the Philological Association, who wants to abandon the "metanarrative" that has always supported our culture. Apparently, the Greek and Roman origins of Western thought are merely an "old story that won't work any longer." Professor Willett's answer to this is a stinging indictment of the confusion and untruth that postmodernists glibly introduce into the world. (Contains 6 notes.)
