    A key Postmodernity book of Harvey's book is its wide-ranging, interdisciplinary scope. Postmodernists reject the notion that the person is an autonomous individual with a rational consciousness that transcends his or her particular place in culture, language, history, and gendered body. So what is this postmodernism of which many now speak? Also, he believes that the "meta-narratives that the post-modernists decry Marx, Freud, and even later figures like Althusser were much more open, nuanced, and sophisticated than the critics admit"

    For Harvey, the speed-up of capital turnover and the pace of life itself has direct implications at the level of cultural practices. Postmodernity book the rise and spread of critical theories and concepts of post-modernity and postmodernism have not served the purpose. Moreover, there are important intellectual influences on postmodernism the emphases on discontinuity, complexity, chaos, perspectivism, anti-realism, etcwhich were already present in modernism and were very important in scientific theories such as quantum mechanics, as well as in the thought of Nietzsche and pragmatism. That same year, an anti-Semitic political campaign succeeded in pushing most of the Jewish—Polish population out of the country, including Bauman.

    Fragmentation, indeterminacy and intense distrust of all universal or totalising discourses are the hallmark Postmodernity book postmodernist thought. There are two curious omissions in Harvey's book: ecology and politics. He described an as yet "nameless era" which he characterized as Postmodernity book shift to conceptual world based on pattern, purpose, and process rather than mechanical cause, outlined by four new realities: the emergence of Educated Society, the importance of international developmentthe decline of the nation state, and the collapse of the viability of non-Western cultures. Though none of these institutions entirely embraces all aspects of the postmodern movement in its most concentrated definition they all reflect, or borrow from, some of its core ideas. Harvey might easily grant such influences he at least sees some continuities between modernism and postmodernismbut he needs an account of "cultural dominant" that explains how a diversity of pre-existing factors, as well as new ones, coalesce into a postmodern sensibility. Theorists such as Michel Maffesoli believe that postmodernity is corroding the circumstances that provide for its subsistence and will eventually result in a decline of individualism and the birth of a new neo-Tribal era.
