Ideology and Cultural Identity Modernity and the Third World Presence

Synopsis

Ideology and Cultural Identity Modernity and the Third World Presence by Jorge Larrain

In this book Jorge Larrain discusses three of the most important concepts in the social sciences: ideology, reason and cultural identity.

Reviews

'Larrain's study is a very useful survey of recent developments in the critique of ideology.'
Choice

'Larrain's work is a pleasure to read: tentative and humane, he employs a concept of ideology derived from but not entirely concident with that of Marx to offer a critical examination of the complacency and complicity of much contemporary discussion of ideology.'
Political Studies

'... He analyses what he has always analysed very well - namely, the history of the concept of ideology from Schopenhauer and Nietzsche, Pareto et al., through Marx and Engels to Althusser, post-structuralism, postmodernism and Habermas.'
Radical Philosophy

Sam Lewis

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
