Classical Readings in Culture and Civilization (International Library of Sociology)

Classical Readings in Culture and Civilization (International Library of Sociology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In recent times, especially under the influence of postmodernism, culture has often been construed as a critique of modernity. This wide-ranging and comprehensive collection of readings shows that such issues have always been at the centre of thought about the relationship between culture and civilization

The readings are divided into three sections, linking the civilization debate to political theory, to the cultural debate and to the sociology and anthropology. The substantial extracts included give students a rare chance to engage at length with classic texts to appreciate the nature of the battle between the Enlightenment and its critics which has shaped current thought.

Classical Readings on Culture and Civilisation presents essays from Immanuel Kant, Adam Ferguson, Thomas Jefferson, Alexis de Tocqueville, Friedrich von Schiller, Friedrich Nietzche, Georg Simmel, Thomas Mann, Sigmund Freud, Emile Durkheim, Marcel Mauss, Lucien Febvre, Alfred Weber, Robert E. Park and Norbert Elias.

Synopsis:

This is a wide ranging and comprehensive survey of cultural and sociological thought, bringing together key published essays from some of the most renowned thinkers from the mid-eighteenth century to the mid-twentieth.
