This study addresses the key questions posed by the postmodernist challenge: is it possible to reflect and criticize in an age when every claim to truth is under suspicion? Are social critics contaminated by the same ideological distortions they identify in society? This interdisciplinary text aims to provide a wide-ranging overview of different responses to such dilemmas and examine ways to reconstruct social theory and critique following the postmodern attack on the traditional foundations of knowledge. Whether looking at the political critique and praxis, feminist issues, ideology or teaching practices, the contributions contained are united by the need to ground a theoretical and political position in the absence of the foundationalist certainties once provided by positivism and empiricism. "After Postmodernism" should be of interest to students of social psychology, social theory, rhetoric and communication, cultural studies and political theory.
