The problem with postmodernism

Postmodernists have faith in the fact that truth is ultimately unknowable. This is their faith principle or unwarranted presupposition. It is assumed not proven (unless the different claims about ultimate reality are given as ‘evidence’ that no one can know. But one cannot know truth is unknown to others, only that it is unknown to oneself.  This fact belies their claims to be humbler that others (always dodgy ground!) by ‘admitting’, what they say all of us should do, that they don’t know.
