Culture, Identity, and Politics by Ernest Gellner

Book Description

These essays explore the relationship between culture and politics in the modern world. They range in space from Iran to Algeria, and the eastern marchlands of Europe to the Atlantic, and in time over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. But they are all inspired by a cluster of linked preoccupations with the nature of the social order now emerging in the world and the kinds of moral and political legitimation it requires and permits. The essays are also linked by Ernest Gellner's distinctive, and highly arresting, intellectual temper and style. The volume will interest a wide range of readers in the social sciences and philosophy.

Books By Author Ernest Gellner

Nations and Nationalism by Ernest Gellner Nations and Nationalism, Paperback (May 2006)

This updated edition of Ernest Gellner's classic exploration of the roots of nationalism includes an extended introduction from John Breuilly, tracing the way the field has changed over the past two decades. * As pertinent today as it was when it was first published in 1983.

Cause and Meaning in the Social Sciences by Ernest Gellner Cause and Meaning in the Social Sciences, Paperback (February 2006)

This volume focuses on key conceptual issues in the social sciences, such as Winch's idea of a social science, structuralism, Malinowski and Evans-Pritchard, and the concept of kinship. In particular it deals with such problems as the relationship of nature and culture.

Words and Things by Ernest Gellner Words and Things, Paperback (January 2005)

Gellner wrote that linguistic philosophy was an aberrant trivializing perversion of good philosophical practice, substituting, in place of honest theorizing and argument, pedantic scrutiny of intrinsically uninteresting detail. This title remains the most devastating attack on a conventional wisdom in philosophy to this day.

Psychoanalytic Movement by Ernest Gellner Psychoanalytic Movement, Paperback (December 2002)

How did the language of psychoanalysis become the dominant idiom in which the middle classes of the industrialized West speak about their emotions? Ernest Gellner offers a forceful and complex answer to this intriguing question in "The Psychoanalytic Movement".
