Formatted abstract
The paper uses a recent book — Histories of Postmodernism, edited by Mark Bevir, Jill Hargis and Sara Rushing — in order to reflect on the difficulties of historicising postmodernist and poststructuralist thought. It is argued that the methods of philosophical history present a major obstacle to this task, while a suitably developed contextual historiography provides a more fruitful path for inquiry.
