Was postmodernism born from scientific progress? For example Sir Francis Bacon's 4 idols, and eliminating bias's.

In a way it was. It's the antithesis of Enlightenment thought.

Yes, so do you think Postmodernism is good to spur on scientific progress currently like The Enlightenment once did? Or is it also an antithesis of sorts in that regard?

Just so you can think about other options, it could also be from globalization and multiculturalism.
