I picked up Tom Wright’s book Evil and the Justice of God (IVP, 2006). I was struck by this idea:
“This… is a kind of response to the problem of evil. Postmodernism, in recognizing that we are all deeply flawed, aviods any return to a classic doctrine of original sin by claiming that humans have no fixed “identity” and hense no fixed responsibility. You can’t escape evil within postmodernity, but you can’t find anyone to take the blame either.”
Wright goes on to give an example from England when no one was held responsible for a rail accident becuase you can’t find anyone to take the blame either…
This seems to match up with the idea of plurality that I think seems to be a “doctrine” of postmodern thought.
