Summary/Abstract: The article examines the implications of the discourse about Postmodernity. Postmodernity is analyzed as a complex discursive figure. Within the discourse about Postmodernity three levels are distinguished: the postmodern condition, postmodernism, and reflection of the postmodern condition. Special attention is paid to globalisation and the problem of the enforcement of modern projects in East-European societies, particularly Serbia. These societies are termed object-societies, while their modification of Modernity is called Eastmodernity. The author’s answer to the complexity of the posmodern condition is a conception of the politics of subsistence.
