    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 100.00

    It has often been suggested that a resolution of issues generated by the sociological study of ideas might be reached through a synthesis of specific insights to be found in the works of Karl Marx and George Herbert Mead.

    Karl Mannheim?s Ideology and Utopia has been a profoundly provocative book.

It begins by sketching recent sociological approaches to science, notably the strong programme ? Bloor?s ?science of science? and Barnes?s ?finitism? ? and that of the ?anthropologists in the lab?, Collins and Latour... more...

  • Synaesthesia and the Ancient Sensesby Shane Butler; Alex Purves

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Like us, the ancient Greeks and Romans came to know and understand the world through their senses. Yet sensory experience has rarely been considered in the study of antiquity and, when the senses are examined, sight is regularly privileged. 'Synaesthesia and the Ancient Senses' presents a radical reappraisal of antiquity's textures, flavours, and aromas,... more...
