Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

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.
