The Postmodern Condition – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Postmodern Condition – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: “The Postmodern Condition was written as a report on the influence of technology on the notion of knowledge in exact sciences, commissioned by the Qu�bec government. Lyotard later admitted that he had a ‘less than limited’ knowledge of the science he was to write about, and to compensate for this knowledge, he ‘made stories up’ and referred to a number of books that he hadn’t actually read. In retrospect, he called it ‘a parody’ and ‘simply the worst of all my books’.[3] Despite this, and much to Lyotard’s regret, it came to be seen as his most important piece of writing.”
