Editorial Reviews

Booknews
These four essays approach a number of relevant questions for those interested in the philosophy of critical theory, social theory, cultural studies, and methodologies for social research. Carspecken (cultural studies, U. of Houston) is interested in the nature of meaningful action and its relationship to power, truth, and desire. He explores the ideas of meaning and truth as they relate to the phenomenological body, and highlights the areas where postmodernists and criticalists both agree and disagree. Annotation c.
