Essay from the year 2003 in the subject Cultural Studies - Basics and Definitions, grade: 80, University of Leeds (Trinity & All Saints College), course: Cultural Analysis, 41 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: At the beginning of the new century the perception that we are living at a time of deep change, in practise as well as in thought, is widespread. In recent years the social and human sciences proclaimed that we are entering a time of endism, a period of post-capitalism, post-industrialism, post-socialism and above all of post-modernism and post-modernity. The number of different post labels suggests a deep uncertainty about the present as well as the future and agreement between the different theories exist only in the view that things are not what they used to be . In the following, this paper aims to examine in what sense we might be living through posthistorical times.
