-> ''When people face what nothing in their past has prepared them for they grope for words to name the unknown, even when they can neither define nor understand it...The keyword was the small preposition, "after," generally used in its latinate form "post" as a prefix...to mark out the mental territory of twentiety-century life. The world...became post-industrial, post-imperial, post-modern, post-structuralist, post-Marxist, post-Gutenburg, or whatever.''

Added DiffLines:

* Though the term was first coined in 1992, after the election of UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump, the term post-truth gained a lot of traction. Referring to constant repeating of BlatantLies even after said lies have been debunked by appealing to emotion. The terms "Fake News" and "Alternative Facts" stem from this idea.

* PostCyberPunk tries to move beyond the cynicism and hopelessness of CyberPunk in various ways, such as giving hope for the future (Film/TheMatrix Trilogy does this with a messiah figure), showing the upside of technological progress, as well as the down side (works that focus entirely on the bright side of cyber-punk technologies are called "cyber prep") or by parodying or deconstructing Cyber punk tropes (''Literature/SnowCrash'' and ''ComicBook/{{Transmetropolitan}}'' come to mind.)

* The UrExample is Post-Impressionism, a term used by art historians to describe artists like Vincent van Gogh, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, or Paul Gauguin, who built upon the innovations of the Impressionists and took painting to new styles of expression. Not so much a cohesive art movement as a bunch of loosely-affiliated, like-minded yet fiercely independent artists.
