dear b-haverim,

i've noticed the term "post-modern" slipping into the rhetoric these days.  
what should we understand by "modern" then?  would that be the framework 
pioneered by the 19th germans, and in criticism associated with 
Wellhausen?  if so, the post-modern is not that "post".  and then what do 
you do with dissenters like Kaufmann and the Jerusalem School?  is that 
pre-modern or anti-modern?

any thoughts on the correct use of modern? and pre- vs post-?
