Overview
Across the humanities and the social sciences, debate is currently focusing on how to rebuild theory and criticism in the wake of postmodernism. In this timely and original book, leading international scholars address the key questions posed by the postmodernist challenge.Is it possible to reflect and criticize in an age when every claim to truth is placed under suspicion? Are social critics contaminated by the same ideological distortions they identify in society? This interdisciplinary text provides a wide-ranging overview of different responses to such dilemmas and thus examines ways to reconstruct social theory and critique following the postmodern attack on the traditional foundations of knowledge.Whether looking at political critique and praxis, feminist issues, ideology or teaching practices, these contributions are united by the need to ground a new theoretical and political position in the absence of the foundationalist certainties once provided by positivism and empiricism.After Postmodernism points to the future of critical scholarship in a postmodern age and will be of interest to scholars in social psychology, social theory, rhetoric and communication, cultural studies and political theory.
