Notes:
Postmodernism has many reasonably common, but diverse senses. Accordingly, it is generally recommended that you just learn the sense (or senses) that currently interest you.

Memory aid:  It might be easier to remember this word’s various senses in different contexts, if you think of all of them as having to do with dismissing the importance of  logic, simplicity, and order.
