Oxford University Press, 2001 "[this book] traces the root of postmodern theory to a debate on the foundations of mathematics early in the 20th century" -- from a blurb appearing in Google Books I've always thought there was a connection: Theorem: Truth, reality and logic are mere social constructs. Proof: By Godel's theorem, yada, yada, yada I actually believe that postmodernism is driving western civilization into a dark ages. And I think that's a good reason for getting mystical metaphysical nonsense out of mathematics. But no one seems to care.
It all depends sans the elite notions spewed here whether if mathematics is primordially created by a creator , which it is . What is driving western civilization to failure is its inabilitty to understand primordiality in all our ventures.
