Critical Realism Today: New Formations 56 Autumn 2005

£17.99

Product description

Critical realism began in the mid-1970s as a major intervention in the philosophy of science. Since then it has grown into one of the most ambitious and provocative attempts at understanding the natural and the social world. Initially associated with the work of the philosopher Roy Bhaskar, it currently attracts specialists from a wide variety of disciplines including law, political theory, sociology, international relations, and communications, with concerns ranging from the question of human freedom to the place of spirituality in late modernity. The essays in this issue provide an overview and balance sheet of critical realism's achievements to date. They tackle some of the dominant trends in contemporary philosophy and cultural theory, and explore some of its possible yet contested futures. Together they offer both an indispensable introduction ad a guide to new directions.

Condition: Cover is very mildly shelfworn and marked. Foreedge has some pencil marks. Pages are clean and clear and binding is tight.
