Fashion, celebrity, movies, lifestyles, and the other major phenomena of postmodern culture all demonstrate the predominating place and role of surfaces in the culture.

Titles of some of the essays are: Biology—the science of surface- The ideology of surfaces- The migration to surfaces, the search for familiarity- Beyond the bounds of narcissism- Odysseus among the isles- The hegemony of technique in cubism- Control of surfaces is control of time- The hollowness of depth.The essays by an author with a background in philosophy and literature bring to light the essence of postmodernism by weighing its most salient, apparent, features—namely, the surfaces which both enchant and enclose.
