Culture and Truth: The Remaking of Social Analysis

Culture and Truth: The Remaking of Social Analysis Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Culture and Truth is a call for a new approach to thinking and writing about culture. Exposing the inadequacies of old conceptions of static, monolithic culture, and of detached, "objective" observers, the book argues instead for social science to acknowledge and celebrate diversity, narrative, emotion, and the unavoidability of subjectivity. In this edition, a new introduction gives powerful reasons for protecting diversity within and outside the academy.

Synopsis:

Exposing the inadequacies of old conceptions of static cultures and detached observers, the book argues instead for social science to acknowledge and celebrate diversity, narrative, emotion, and subjectivity.
