Postmodernism has been one of the most influential social and philosophical movements of the past decade, but it has also been one of the most misunderstood and misrepresented. In the first part of this book, Gary Rolfe offers a clear and concise introduction to modernist and postmodernist thought, drawing on the work of key thinkers such as Lyotard, Derrida, Foucault and Barthes. In part two, he applies this understanding of postmodernism to a number of published works on postmodernist nursing and midwifery research, exploring themes of power, truth and authority in the discourse of nursing.
