The author discusses the impact of postmodernism in education wherein it valorized notions of subjectivity and lived experience while deprecating people from objective Truth and Enlightenment values. The author mentions that postmodernism also left legacy in the realms of epistemology, morality and metaphysics which has become morally suspect. Among other things, the author notes that scholars who published journals that encourage experience-based methodologies get promoted or received tenure.
