Description - Social Theory and Modernity by Timothy W. Luke
The author, Timothy Luke combines the analytical techniques of political theory and comparative politics as a method of innovative inquiry and research in political science. The focus of political theory presents new issues for historical and cross-national comparative analysis, whereas comparative analysis provides new parameters in political theory for analyzing the ideology of social institutions. Luke elaborates upon Rousseau's discursive style and critical methods, Marx's historical materialism, Marcuse's instrumental rationality, Weber's interpretive method, Gramsci's theoretical tactics, Cabral's theories of critique and revolution, and Foucault's system of political and social analysis. The book concludes by offering an analysis of the moral and ideological influence of behaviour and the link between ideology and political economy, especially in modern society.
