the postmodernist and the hassid

I only just realized that that is the correct translation of the title of Rebbe Nachman's story which is normally translated as: the Sophisticate and the Simpleton. [see it online here] [purchase audio book here] [purchase hardcopy here] (full disclosure: I in no way benefit from any purchases you do or don't make -- except for any merit I get in that I pointed out a source you will enjoy to learn from.)

For a long time I've maintained that Hassidut is the answer to Post Modernism, but for some reason I never clicked on the fact that this story embodies the answer itself.
