Description

Abstract

This paper investigates my multiple selves, in particular the conflict between my traditional and modern self-identities. Through phenomenology, my inability to strictly adhere to one set of beliefs is treated as problematic in order to understand how society influences the development and nourishment of each self. By uncovering the oppressive nature of universal truths in our postmodern society, the pressure to choose among metanarratives is deemed unnecessary. Postmodernity is discussed as a hybrid mode combining both tradition and modernity and not as a complete departure from them. Ultimately, the postmodern era in which we live, if fostered, can allow greater personal freedom from society’s oppressive frameworks and a personal reclamation of power.
