Are There Any Signs of Postmodernism with Economics?

Dow S (1991) Are There Any Signs of Postmodernism with Economics?, Methodus, 3 (1), pp. 81-85.

First paragraph: Postmodernism has attracted some attention among economists in methodological circles (see Klamer, 1987a, 1987b, Thompson, 1989 and Amariglio, 1990). But there has been little by way of concrete discussion of what precisely postmodern tendencies in economics might consist of. An attempt was made (Dow, 1991) to apply postmodernism as a means of categorising schools of thought in economics. But it was concluded that the category was not particularly helpful, and that postmodernism had limited applicability to economics. In any case, in the meantime, postmodernism appears to have been superceded in other disciplines by the 'New Historicism'.
