This photo was taken in Aveiro in 2008.
Jean-François Lyotard was a French philosopher.La Condition postmoderne (The Postmodern Condition, in English) was first published in 1979.

"...is postmodernity the pastime of an old man who scrounges in the garbage-heap of finality looking for leftovers, who brandishes unconsciousnesses, lapses, limits, confines, goulags, parataxes, non-senses, or paradoxes, and who turns this into the glory of his novelty, into his promise of change?"
