  1. Now there are two major areas — analytical and continental philosophy.

    The first one prevails in academic life and refers to strict classical philosophy, logicians, scientists, etc. A bright modern representative of this tradition is Daniel Dennett. Continental philosophy, by and large, inherits all areas that are not classified as analytical, including postmodernism. A bright modern representative is Peter Sloterdijk.

    Of course, it is worth asking separately whether postmodernism in philosophy was such a big deal, or rather we were dealing with some general “insanity” in the intellectual and creative environment. In my opinion, the latter is more likely, since modern philosophy, including continental philosophy, quite easily abandoned the development of the intellectual heritage of many significant postmodern thinkers.

  2. None of the existing philosophical doctrines can be called dominant. The general level of disillusionment has grown and ideas about philosophy have significantly expanded, creating conditions for the coexistence of adherents of various philosophical trends. The same postmodernism is still in force, although it is subject to regular and harsh criticism.
