This event could be a monumental to be thought of as a usual reader would imagine. I think as I could possibly elucidate it in this section would be, revelatory. First, is the conception of what is to be "modern"? 'Modern consciousness' derives its foundation and expression from the two main field of distinctions namely, the modernism and the modernity. modernism which underlies the 'modern consciousness' is what define the modern philosophy. modern philosophy, well as most of the reader understand, is a wellspring of Cartesian prominence and influence. Descartes ushers the thinking being as an autonomous who can dominate nature by its immense rational abilities. this claim was supported by Kant in his publication of the Critique of Pure reason and the two others. Descartes and Kant embraces the power of epistemology wherein reason is the guarantee of modern progress which channels the domain of human emancipation. the single drama is driven or acted by a single rational being of Descartes and reason faculties of Kant. the typology from the ancient conception of nature as the reality is reduced into the idea of positing this rational being on high or "man" is enthroned on the field of all. this is the modern standpoint. in the field of intellectual history, "man" as a rational being enthroned to dominate nature and possesses all the expected ideal progress of modern thinking is the main actor of history's developmental emancipation. history is understood to have a unilinear progression towards an end or goal. this goal in Hegel's account is to attain the pure Spirit. this is it. what is the postmodern then? the bridge from modern to postmodern is the philosophy of Michel Foucault. in this point I would utilize it as an avenue to the field of philosophical system. Foucault has a three stages in his development I thinking, namely, the archaeology, genealogy, and the ethics. the two stages (archaeology and genealogy) are what I wanted to posit here. Foucault disrupted the foundation of Descartes and Kant by ushering the method of the episteme. the epistemological foundation of modern thinking is challenged through the investigations on how knowledge becomes possible and where it gain its legitimacy. Foucault delve deeper in this section to scatter the rational capabilities of the thinking being of Descartes. Foucault utilizes his analysis on the painting of Velasquez Las Meninas to view that the rational being do not have any position, intervention or activity in the order of the world. but rather "man" is only a clarifier of that order. "man" as a rational being is limited and do not know his origin likewise the Das'ein of Heidegger. this conception of Foucault's "man" as an inutile amidst the rational or conceptual ordering ushers the dissolution of man or what he called the "death of man". His combat on modern thinking or the modernism ceases here. in the field of modernity, Foucault utilizes the genealogy to break the progress, primarily industrial and historical, of the modern thinking. genealogy focuses on power relations that dominates the historical field of the modern thinking, it is not necessarily geographical but institutional. Foucault challenges the domain of historical surfaces of the modern by positing systems of what he called the dispositif. this method challenges the order of the structures that channels power subjugations among the social bodies.
the two system of Foucault, the archaeology and the genealogy are the two elements of the postmodern rise. postmodern thinking embraces diversity in styles, and expressions. postmodern adopts numerous philosophies and viewpoints. it is called as 'eclecticism'. this scattered view is indebted with Foucault's two systems of critique of modern thinking. postmodern thinking from its very origin undergone a long incubation from 1960 to 1980 until it was successfully accepted as 'cool'.
Well, sharing ends up here for now.
This section still need a lot of investigation and analysis.
