9780745648224: The Dark Side of Modernity
Rezension:

"Alexander greatly contributes to social theory by demonstrating the two sides of the coin of modernity in his explanation to diverse approaches and various thinkers in the field." Review of Social Studies "This book offers a highly engaging and insightful overview of modernity" Political Studies Review "No major figure in American social theory has reached so far beyond regional traditions to reinvent the language by which we interpret culture, politics, and the dilemmas of modernity. The Dark Side of Modernity collects superb essays representative of Jeff Alexander's special gift for clear expression, unflinching criticism, and creative thinking." Charles Lemert, Center for Comparative Research, Sociology, Yale University "Modernity has had its critics from the beginning, but social science in general and sociology in particular have mainly supported the idea that it is a 'good thing.' Few were willing to look squarely at the dark side of modernity, Weber being a partial exception. Jeffrey Alexander has looked unflinchingly at the dark side, not holding it to be the only truth about modernity, but an inescapable aspect of it. His new book is indispensable for anyone who wants to look at modernity whole." Robert Bellah, University of California, Berkeley and coauthor of Habits of the Heart

Buchbeschreibung Wiley & Sons. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 226xx mm. Neuware - In this book, one of the world's leading social theorists presents a critical, alarmed, but also nuanced understanding of the post-traditional world we inhabit today. Jeffrey Alexander writes about modernity as historical time and social condition, but also as ideology and utopia. The idea of modernity embodies the Enlightenment's noble hopes for progress and rationality, but its reality brings great suffering and exposes the destructive impulses that continue to motivate humankind. 200 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9780745648224
