"Postmodernism has come so much to take for granted universality that it can only apparently identify it by its blindspots."
What does "identify sth by one's blindspots" mean?
I don't think it is abut
"identifying sth by one's blindspots",
"identifying sth by its blindspots".
blind spot: area in the retina of the eye which is not sensitive to light; area which is outside of one's field of vision
I'd say, like exceptions to a rule, or weak points on a solid object/argument
"Postmodernism has come so much to take for granted universality, - that -, it can only apparently identify universality by (realizing)/(looking at) those things in which universality is not present / not to be seen"
Not a teacher, but that's what I understand.
And as you see here we have a vocabulary problem not a sociological or philosophical one and I think that I must pose my question here at this forum!
If so, what is the logical relation between main clause and subordinate clause?
If someone be taken for granted , it's existence is so familiar for us that we tend to neglect it . I think that i this sense "take for granted " relates to "blindspots". right?
Postmodernism has come so much to take for granted universality, - that ===subordinate clause
it can only apparently identify it by its blindspots===main clause
It must be some relation in such a structure as " so much .... that...".
Postmodernism has come so much to take for granted universality that it can only apparently identify itI have no idea what the blindspots of universality are. Sorry.
(it = universality) by its blindspots.
