5.0 out of 5 stars A great way to engage with ideas, 16 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Contingency, Hegemony and Universality: Contemporary Dialogues on the Left (Radical Thinkers Classic Editions) (Paperback)
This is a great way to elicit and highlight aspects of argumentation that get buried in people's accounts of the world. This deals directly with rhetoric and terminology in a way that renders it inherently useful to people across various practices and camps (anybody who uses words to express meanings in fact!).

This book offers incredibly valuable insights into epistemology and ontology that have contributed greatly to my understanding. The subject matter they choose to deal with also offers a great deal of insight to people engaging with 'the way things are described'. In a world in which words cannot wholly encapsulate their referents, how should we use such words and concepts. This brings up questions of pragmatism (usefulness / effectiveness), realism (accuracy) and politicisation (purpose / effect) within each other's rhetoric. This strips down the arguments of great thinkers, and micro-analyses the potential impact of their thinking, expressions and sentiment in a way that is wholly enlightening and gripping throughout. There is a lot of wisdom from brilliant thinkers in here at a great price!
