Postmodernism as pseudohistory: Continuities in the complexities of social action

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Problems of historical and cultural specificity have returned recently to the foreground of sociological discussion, propelled in large part by debate over modernity and postmodemity, modernism and post- modernism. Though in recent years tius debate came to sociology largely from outside, it is a worthy renewal of some of the key concerns of the classical social theorists who struggled to identify the core feature distinguishing modem Western society from other epochs and sociocultura formations.
