Rousseau and the French Revolution Universal History. Books you’re Currently Reading – Page Foucault, Derrida, and Lyotard — Oh My! Hicks, This book is by far the most helpful resource I have ever come across for understanding why the world is turning to a direction that I cannot comprehend. In fact I would say this is the most influential book I have ever read and yet you offer it up for free.

There are so few philosophers in academia that defend rationality, you really are noble in your effort to promote reason. You are a revitalizing and refreshing in your content and efficient and eloquent in your presentation. Thank you so much!


I plan on homeschooling my two boys, and when they come of age, this book will be on the mandatory reading list. Because this book so clearly states the philosophies that lead up to the postmodernist movement and accurately exposes the true nature of the irrationality, I am able to teach my children to identify irrational concepts and teach them to avoid the logical pitfalls of postmodern philosophy.


I am not a philosopher, and I am not even close to your level in any regard. I am only 27 and have not yet started college, so my compliments may seem empty… But I do think deeply about life and I seek to find the truth to understand ethical concepts and to understand the nature of existence and I truly value the ability to have access to your ideas.

Dear Dr Hicks, I read your book on postmodernism and I was very impressed by it! This is an exceptionally good book that is written with great insight and clarity. Your book should be a compulsory reading to every university student in the western world, especially the humanities and social sciences departments.

All the best and keep up the good work! Just finished this book, and am reading it again. I appreciate your clear and direct writing style. But it ends without defending reason! I think Steven Pinker is working on a book that defends the enlightenment project. Thanks for the praise, Aaron.

How on earth could an intellectual foothold be achieved at all? There are many outlets, academic and otherwise, for good intellectual work. So the fact that most yicks journals are sealed off from outside engagement, so to speak, is a minor problem. Where can I find this book for a normal price?

A new printing will be out this summer. Now it is available at Amazon on Kindle or audiobook at YouTube. Thanks for your interest. I was drawn to your book by Jordan B Peterson, during the beginning of his speech and the Manning Centre.

I was looking at purchasing a copy of your book postnodernism to no avail in a reasonable price point. I am glad to hear that the book is being printed this summer and I would be very excited to see that come to fruition. We are currently living in difficult times and I am on a journey for information so that I may sort out postmovernism world around me.

Again, glad to hear that there is a printing coming soon. Perhaps you could give us an idea on the best place to purchase your book or to watch for the new prints to come out.

Thanks for your interest, Matt. I will mention here when the new printing is available for sure. Also Amazon will then update its status. Ships from TX, United States. Shipping rates and return policy. Very well written, very informative and very well structured apology to ;ostmodernism, with surface view on Hegel and dismissal of his dialectics. Could be very useful for cementing young readers mind on the idea that socialism has failed.


I think your perspective is very much needed in this time, and since this is a very complicated topic it could help to provide a more expoaining view on this issue. Would you happen hicsk have an update on the timing of when Explaining Postmodernism will be back in print? Definitely looking forward to getting a hard copy!

This has been the best book I have ever read. Your writing style postmodeernism very down to earth. I listened to it on audio and read it on the kindle. This has helped me become a more informed and more aware of what goes on around me. It as rekindled a passion for philosophy.

I would love to read anything else you have.

I finished Edplaining and the Nazis and your pamphlet postmodernism and free speech. If you have anything else, I would love to hear it or what I should explore next. I would like to expand my knowledge base of the work postmodernisj ideas produced by the major thinkers of the postmodern movement. Are there any particular books you could recommend to me that would result in a greater yield than simply reading primary source Derrida, Foucault, etc.?

Or do I need to just wade into the long-winded and often professionally abstruse primary works themselves….

Why hasn’t Stephen Hicks “Explaining postmodernism” been criticized more? : askphilosophy

Thanks for the praise, Ryan. For discussion of pomo in applied areas, I recommend these four books: For serious history-of-ideas scholarship, getting into the primary sources will be necessary. Thanks for your interest, Mark. A new printing will be postmodernims later this month and at Amazon at the normal price. Now it is only available on Kindle or Postmoderrnism at YouTube.

We will also be covering language deconstruction and ideological Fascism among other topics.

I already have an interview with Gene Edward Veith and some others. Would you be interested in participating by way of a video interview?

Please email me notice unique postmoodernism Dr Hicks, I think that says something for your work. All free of charge. Wow, thanks for letting me know, Tim. Dr Hicks, any idea when these will be back in stock?
