Product Overview

Marxist thought pervades American academic discourse, particularly in the humanities and the social sciences. Fern?ndez-Morera shows why the survival of these ideas is unjustified in the face of their theoretical and practical problems and their historical record. Fern?ndez-Morera provides a comprehensive critique of Marxist/materialist discourse as it pervades contemporary American scholarship. He examines the rhetorical and ideological underpinnings of the discourse, the socioeconomic circumstances and personality type of its academic practitioners, and its impact on other forms of academic speech. He also exposes the epistemological and ethical consequences of the discourse in light of the history of the 20th century and explains its remarkable success in the academic world. Being multidisciplinary, the book should challenge many and appeal to those interested in criticism, politics, epistemology, ethics, history, sociology, and even economics. Certainly all those interested in the condition of higher education will find it provocative. *Author: Fernandez-Morera, Dario *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 216 *Publication Date: 1996/09/09 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.54 x 6.32 x 0.82 inches
