Modernist literature and art have been dominated by a disinterest in mere empirical and social reality and a discontent with habitualized perception and the world-view of convention, reason, and pragmatism.

This anti-realistic attitude originated inMoreModernist literature and art have been dominated by a disinterest in mere empirical and social reality and a discontent with habitualized perception and the world-view of convention, reason, and pragmatism. This anti-realistic attitude originated in the epistemological scepticism of the early 20th century which was even radicalized by the advent of the -linguistic turn-, constructivism, postmodernism, and poststructuralism.

Yet it would be a gross simplification to describe the 20th century flatly and globally as an age of anti-realism. Especially in its second half many neo-realist movements were launched, and non-Western literatures (e.g. -magic realism-) challenged Western modernity and its constructivist epistemology. Today, we can not only read many texts which might be attributed to a -postmodernist realism- but may even be watching the rise of a post-postmodernist realism.
