  • Altered States: Postmodernism, Politics, Culture.Mark Perryman - 1994 - Lawrence & Wishart Limited.
    "Altered States looks back at the election of 1992 in the light of postmodern political theory and highlights some of the lessons to be learnt from that defeat. The contributors consider where the left is situated now, how the theoretical structures of postmodernism can be used to reassess that position, and suggest ways of forecasting the future."

  • Principled Positions: Postmodernism and the Rediscovery of Value.Judith Squires (ed.) - 1993 - Lawrence & Wishart.
    The deconstruction of all 'principled positions' creates a value vacuum which, in turn, leads to a state of ethical and political paralysis. The contributors to Principled Positions ponder these dilemmas and try to build bridges between the modernist absolutes of truth, value and justice and the anti-totalising spirit of postmodernism.

  • Up Against Foucault: Explorations of Some Tensions Between Foucault and Feminism.Caroline Ramazanoglu (ed.) - 1993 - Routledge.
    Up Against Foucault offers both a feminist critique of Foucauldian theories as well as an attempt to reconcile these seemingly irreconcilable perspectives. Feminists are often "up against Foucault" because he questions key conclusions in feminism regarding the nature of gender relations, and men's possession of power. This book, however, fills the gap in literature about Foucault by showing how his theories of sexuality and power relations are often applicable to the everyday realities of women's lives. Drawing upon their diverse backgrounds (...)

  • Ideological Dilemmas: A Social Psychology of Everyday Thinking.Michael Billig (ed.) - 1988 - Sage Publications.
    A major contribution to the social scientific understanding of how people make sense of their lives, Ideological Dilemmas presents an illuminating new approach to the study of everyday thinking. Contradictory strands abound within both ideology and common sense. In contrast to many modern theorists, the authors see these dilemmas of ideology as enabling, rather than inhibiting: thinking about them helps people to think meaningfully about themselves and the world. The dilemmas within ideology and their effects on thinking are explored through (...)

  • Enlightened Women: Modernist Feminism in a Postmodern Age.Alison Assiter - 1995 - Routledge.
    This is a bold and controversial feminist, philosophical critique of postmodernism. While providing a brief and accessible introduction to postmodernist feminist thought, Enlightened Women is also a unique defence of realism and enlightenment philosophy. The first half of the book covers an analysis of some of the most influential postmodernist theorists, such as Luce Irigaray and Judith Butler. In the second half Alison Assiter advocates a return to modernism in feminism. She argues, against the current orthodoxy, that there can be (...)
