After the Future brings together diverse aspects of postmodernism by philosophers, literary critics, historians of architecture, and sociologists.  It addresses the nature of postmodernism in painting, architecture, and the performing arts, and explores the social and political implications of postmodern theories of culture.  

The book raises the question of whether postmodernism is to be seen as one more epoch or period witin a succession of eras, or as a challenge to the modernist practice of periodization itself.
