Postmodern aesthetics

[Comment posted by Sandeep Re: Sanatana Dharma LXXVI—The Hour of God
Sometimes I don't understand myself either(!), but in this case I was applying post-modernism vocab in a spiritual context to create conceptual chaos and problematize Sri Aurobindo.]

Sandeep has again ridiculed the pomo lingo, and it hurts. Each language has scores of dialects and if one more has been honed for academic communication pertaining to postmodern discourse, then there should be no scope for any complain. Localized as we are, our turfs are varied and scattered and the world, in any case, is not all about sausages for gaggles of geese and ganders.

We can always protest against the content and its creator, but to resist his medium would be akin to killing the messenger. A Thousand Plateaus by Deleuze & Guattari, for instance, features in the desert island reading list of countless persons for sheer aesthetic reasons and that needs to be respected. [TNM]
