The cultural milieu that we witness today has emerged from antifoundationalist "movements" such as postmodernism, poststructuralism and postcolonialism. It is also an important stage in the intellectual history of the Western civilization during which it has come to appraise its turbulent experiences – the devastation both in the 20th century as a whole and in the present – to accommodate itself to a future that is being both occasioned and promulgated by advances in technology. To that extent, the prefix "post" in the terms that describe the mood of the present does not indicate a complete break from the past, but rather hints that we are in a process of ongoing transformation and change.
