Postmodernism is an intellectual movement that has become a concept to be wrestled with. Probably, any movement may fade away in future, but die we doubt. It is believed that everything which is nomadic and parodic is susceptible to develop. In fact, something which develops is, per se, productive, and postmodernism is not an exception. The present paper is an attempt to review the main tenets of postmodernism, appraise its main features critically, and hold that postmodernism, as an intellectual movement, is not stable, but dynamic; it repeatedly creates itself without losing its significant features.

Key Words: deconstruction, individualism, modernism, postmodernism
