Lecture 4: Post-Modernism

Dr. Matthew Petrusek

January 3, 2023


In Lecture 4, we turn to another foundational ideological influence: post-modernism. Post-modernism is a once-obscure academic theory that progressivism has fed off, altered, and now made politically mainstream. It rejects the existence of objectively true definitions and true beliefs, making it thoroughly self-contradictory and self-refuting.

In this lecture series, Dr. Matthew Petrusek discusses contemporary progressive ideology, also frequently referred to as “wokeism,” and the response of the Catholic social thought tradition.
