A Border Within
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungA Border Within addresses the question of English Canadian identity by exploring whether a plurality of discourses can lead to other than a fragmented society. Ian Angus examines the relationship between globalizing social movements and the particularities of identity politics by extending the theories on identity of Harold Innis and George Grant, two seminal figures in Canadian political philosophy, to develop a philosophy applicable to the contemporary social issues of multiculturalism and environmentalism.
Pressestimmen"An important and timely intervention into the public realm, A Border Within offers serious solutions to current questions of national identity, social movements, and the 'homelessness' of late modernity, both in the current Canadian context as well as elsewhere. It is a most ambitious affirmation of the belief in philosophy's ability to address issues central to ordinary human concerns." Michael Dorland, School of Journalism and Communication, Carleton University
