In my opinion, Huyssen's dissection of the shift from modernism to postmodernism has been the most coherent and rational of all our previous readings. In contrast to other authors, Huyssen dealt with vague terms such as avantgarde and postmodernism head on. He delved deep into how these concepts have shaped our world today. Huyssen's explanation of why the avante-garde can no longer function could easily be the fate of postmodernism.
