Michael Luntley provides a lively introduction to the debate over postmodernism. Sympathisers of the postmodernist critique of absolute knowledge have jetisoned concepts of reason,t ruth and self; this abandonment has fuelled their opponents' case against postmodernism. This has led them to ignore the very real problems raised by the postmodernists. Luntley offers a clear and careful exposition of how rational debate survives despite the Enlightenment's failings.
Reason, Truth and Self covers many of the key questions of our age:
* How rational is science?
* Can we really know the truth about ourselves and the world?
* What is the nature of the mind?
* Can we know the difference between right and wrong?
Reason, Truth and Self is ideal for courses in philosophy and the social sciences.
