Between Totalitarianism and Postmodernity: A  Thesis Eleven  Reader


Add your own review!

Overview

These 13 articles - by such writers as Cornelius Castoriadis, Zygmunt Bauman, Ferenc Feher, Agnes Heller, and Axel Honneth - provide theoretical and historically informed analyses of the powerful currents that are shaping the late 20th century political and cultural landscape. They offer insights into the political and philosophical issues stemming from the fall of communism, the troubles of social democracy, and the rise of postmodernism. The reader is arranged in two parts: the first focuses on the current political crises of postcommunist societies and social democracy, while the second takes up the contemporary quarrel between the moderns and the postmoderns.
