The Structure of Modern Cultural Theory

Thomas Osbourne

Published by Manchester University Press

  • An interesting companion for students of cultural theory, concentrating on the four most influential thinkers - Adorno, Bourdieu, Foucault and Jameson
  • Erudite, succinct, percipient and intelligent, it is sure to be welcomed by any number of students engaged in cultural theory
  • Sees cultural theory as ethical, even educational, work - as opposed to it being reduced to political or 'scientific'
  • A genuinely distinctive intervention in the field, whilst aspiring to provide an introductory account of the key thinkers
