£75.00
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

This remarkable book develops a wide-ranging analysis of key issues and debates in contemporary social theory. Drawing social theory, cultural studies, and psychoanalysis together in a bold configuration, Elliott challenges the widespread view that social theory seems to have lost its way as a result of the diversification of conceptual approaches. In outlining an approach that places imagination and creativity at the center of social theory, Elliott argues that theoretical pluralism-from post-structuralism to postmodernism, from psychoanalysis to deconstruction-represents not the demise, but the renewal of critical social theory.

Charles Lemert is Andrus Professor of Sociolgy at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, and is the author of many widely read books, including, most recently, Social Things, 3rd Edition; Dark Thoughts: Race and the Eclipse of Society; and Postmodernism Is Not What You Think/ How Globalization Threatens Modernity. Anthony Elliott is professor of social and political theory at the University of the West of England, where he is director of the Centre for Critical Theory. His recent books include Concepts of the Self (2001), Psychoanalytic Theory: An Introduction (2002), and Critical Visions (2003).
