Intimations of Postmodernity

Bauman, Zygmunt

 In an important volume a British sociologist develops a sociology of postmodernism and a postmodern sociology. He defines postmodernism in general, pointing out that in its deconstructive stance, it is making it possible to re-enchant the world. There are nine chapters, entitled "Legislators and Interpreters: Culture as the Ideology of Intellectuals;" "Sociological Responses to Postmodernity;" "The Changing Discursive Formation of Sociology;" "Is There a Postmodern Sociology?"; "Philosophical Affinities of Postmodern Sociology;" "The World According to Jean Baudrillard;" "Communism: A Postmortem;" "Living Without an Alternative;" and "A Sociological Theory of Postmodernity." In an important Appendix, an interview with Bauman is reproduced.
