Twin birth of Emergence and Postmodernism

An interesting thought. Two words that have created a lot of controversy in the church over the past decade have been “emergence” and “postmodern”. Both words were first used in the same decade. The word “postmodern” was first used in the 1870’s by British artist John Watkins Chapman. The first use of the “Emergence” in a philosophical sense was by George Henry Lewes in Problems of Life and Mind (1875).

Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
