1. THE CONNOTATION OF THE CONSTRUCTIVE POSTMODERNISM Science and rationality have become the supreme guiding ideology and judgment standard ever since the Enlightenment. Science and rationality are complementary and mutually dependent, and following science and esteeming rationality thereby turned the fashion in modern history. The great practice of human Industrial Revolution and constantly developing technologies even highlight the tremendous force of human rationality. Rationality, as the starting-point of modernity, therefore turned the important characterization and had been broadly favored by human beings ever since. The praises and esteems placed on rationality from human beings started turning into extreme as human beings gradually recognized the practical importance of rationality via their world-changing practice. The modern rationality featuring dualism and determinism started eroding every single aspect of human thoughts and practices as well, and rationality started overflowing accordingly. It is exactly like the case that things will develop in the opposite when they become extreme. By the time human beings believe their own power could determine everything and even change everything, and the time that the power of human rationality unreservedly demonstrates itself in front of human beings, it is not difficult for human beings to observe the true colors of rationality, including advantages and disadvantages as well as bright side and dark side. Human beings started self-examining their own rationality, or started thinking about the rationality featuring objectification, mechanistic philosophy, and reductionism as its worldview and methodology. In modernity rethinking, postmodernism has become the anti-modernity pioneer with its complete as well in-depth criticisms on modernity since 20th century.
