Postmodernism and the Social Sciences

Robert Hollinger

$88.00

Paperback
The sudden and extensive growth of the body of postmodernist literature has created a daunting task for social science undergraduate students--to separate, assess, and digest those materials they will find meaningful before they have acquired the knowledge to make appropriate choices. In Postmodernism and the Social Sciences, Robert Hollinger presents a valuable compendium of postmodernist writing relating to the social sciences. He reviews key postmodern discussions on such critical topics as values, identity, the self and society, and compares postmodern thinking with the enlightenment project, modernism, modernity, Marxism, and critical theory. Hollinger's treatment of leading postmodern theorists such as Foucault, Lyotard, Baudrillard, Derrida, Deleuze, Guattari, and how they have challenged traditional social scientific understanding make this an excellent volume for courses on social theory.
