Example text

Basically, I am saying that it is at best trivial and at worst completely futile to find the morning or afternoon when the world entered into postmodernity. However, post-modernity implies a more complex series of connections. Indeed, the status of post-modernity as a primarily intimated condition adds to that complexity. It implies that the post-modern is not distinctly different but that, rather, it can only exist in relation with the modern. The post-modern and the modern are not divisible; they go together.

In these terms then, and to exaggerate a little for the sake of illustration, it might be said that the Immanuel Kant of the Enlightenment essay, and the Max Weber of the ‘Science as a Vocation’ piece, are both members of the technical intelligentsia. They share a similar concern to work within the boundaries of a certainty and thus fail, or simply do not want, to interrogate the basis of their taken for granted principles. Put another way, the technical intelligentsia operate in terms of the culture of reflexive discourse but in a way which emphasizes certainty.

Marx 1977:66). Marx pulled out the full implications of this situation in a typically brilliant dialectical aphorism. Marx said of the worker that ‘in his human functions he no longer feels himself to be anything but an animal. What is animal becomes human and what is human becomes animal’ (Marx 1977:66).

The worker is tied to certainty without knowing.
