The notion of identity is deeply intrinsic to the human experience, being meta-cultural – crossing over every generation and era. The current zeitgeist we are presently in, the era of post-modernism, is not removed from the innateness of identity, but is rather magnified in this age. Dr. Jordan Peterson, a clinical psychologist, defines postmodernism in this regard:

“Hypothetically, [postmodernism] is an attitude of skepticism, irony towards rejection of grand narratives, ideologies, and universalism, criticising objective notions of reason, human nature, social progress, absolute truth and objective reality.”
