Postmodernism , also spelled post-modernism , in Western philosophy , a late 20th-century movement characterized by broad skepticism , subjectivism, or relativism; a general suspicion of reason ; and an acute sensitivity to the role of ideology in asserting and maintaining political and economic power. Postmodernism is a late 20th-century movement in philosophy and literary theory that generally questions the basic assumptions of Western philosophy in the modern period roughly, the 17th century through the 19th century. Postmodern philosophy is characterized by broad skepticism or relativism and a general suspicion of reason. It also broadly asserts that Western intellectual and cultural norms and values are a product of, or are in some sense influenced by, the ideology of dominant or elite groups and at least indirectly serve their interests.

Many postmodernists deny that there are aspects of reality that are objective or that there are statements about reality that are objectively true or false implying metaphysical relativism , that it is possible to have knowledge of such statements implying epistemological skepticism or relativism , and that there are objective, or absolute, moral truths or values implying ethical subjectivism or relativism.
