This chapter discusses 'cultural particularism' as a central feature of postmodernism. It refers to the position that claims that understanding and interaction with the world are contingent upon one's culture. It examines radical cultural particularism, in which there is no objective reality but only multiple different perspectives that are based on local perceptions and interpretations and anchored in a specific cultural context. The chapter looks at the notion of objectivity as a figment of one's philosophical imagination, which is conceived through the lenses of a particular culture. It mentions Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, who is widely considered the founder of several contemporary philosophical movements, such as notably analytic, post-liberal, and postmodern philosophy.

Keywords:   cultural particularism, postmodernism, cultural context, Ludwig Wittgenstein, postmodern philosophy
