Cultural Analysis : The Work of Peter L. Berger, Mary Douglas, Michel Foucault, and Jurgen Habermas, Hardback Book

Cultural Analysis : The Work of Peter L. Berger, Mary Douglas, Michel Foucault, and Jurgen Habermas Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Michel Foucault series

Hardback

Description

First published in 1984, Cultural Analysis is a systematic examination of the theories of culture contained in the writings of four contemporary social theorists: Peter L.

Berger, Mary Douglas, Michel Foucault, and Jurgen Habermas. This study of their work clarifies their contributions to the analysis of culture and shows the converging assumptions that the authors believe are laying the foundation for a new approach to the study of culture.

The focus is specifically on culture, a concept that remains subject to ambiguities of treatment, and concentrates on questions concerning the definition and content of culture, its construction, its relations with social conditions, and the manner in which it may be changing.

The books demonstrates how these writers have made strides towards defining culture as an objective element of social interaction which can be subjected to critical investigation.
