Charles Taylor : Meaning, Morals and Modernity Paperback / softback

Part of the Key Contemporary Thinkers series


The Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor is a key figure in contemporary debates about the self and the problems of modernity.

This book provides a comprehensive, critical account of Taylora s work.

It succinctly reconstructs the ambitious philosophical project that unifies Taylora s diverse writings. And it examines in detail Taylora s specific claims about the structure of the human sciences; the link between identity, language, and moral values; democracy and multiculturalism; and the conflict between secular and non--secular spirituality.

The book also includes the first sustained account of Taylora s career as a social critic and political activist.

Clearly written and authoritative, this book will be welcomed by students and researchers in a wide range of disciplines, including philosophy, psychology, politics, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies and theology.
