Blackwell Pub | March 1992 | English | ISBN: 1557860483 | 320 pages | PDF | 23 MB
A new division has emerged in the social sciences between modernists and their postmodern critics. The former defend the project of a general theory with secure analytical foundations; the latter challenge the possibility and indeed the desirability of aspiring to create totalizing theories. Postmodernists contest the view of science as an automonous sphere of knowledge and reflection.
