Postmoderns proclaim loudly that the project of Enlightenment has fallen into crisis and is coming to an end: the epoch of science and rationality has closed, and now opens a new epoch of post-science, post-modern, post-rational, post-Enlightenment. But mayhap they proclaim too loudly. Their insistence is more a hope, just as the Marxists prematurely proclaimed the crisis of capitalism and the coming end of capitalism.
Beware those who loudly proclaim the crisis or end of this or that.
