This work examines the basic structures that determine the organization of knowledge and exercise of power in the postmodern world. Olsson promotes an agenda that integrates and transcends the limited/limiting language of mainstream social science and human action. By challenging the boundaries traditionally separating sociology, geography, political sciences, philosophy, literature and cultural theory, Olsson creates a new voice for the social sciences in which language is used both to say and to show, both as a topic of analysis and as a mode of presentation.
