Swedish social sciences zine Axess just published a thematic issue about the twilight of post-modernism and the lingering pockets of anything-goes relativism that it's leaving behind. Essays by Johan Lundberg, Ophelia Benson & Jeremy Stangroom, Richard Wolin and Christofer Edling. Currently only in Swedish, but English translations will be on-line shortly.
On the Swedish scale, Axess is a moderate conservative mag. On the US scale, it's somewhere just left of Bill Clinton.

I wish I could just see pomos as historically contingent social constructions. Unfortunately, being a rationalist, I have to accept that they do in fact exist.
But happily, pomos are able to see themselves as historically contingent social constructions, which turn out not to exist whenever rationalists point them out.
I am very offended by their disrespect for my individually constructed point of view where they do in fact exist all the time. Fascists! Micro-fascists!
Ophelia, I want you to call me Loretta and I want to bear your child.
