9781592132430: Uncertainties Of Knowledge (Politics History & Social Chan)

In The Uncertainties of Knowledge, Immanuel Wallerstein extends his work over the last decade of elucidating the crisis of knowledge in current intellectual thought. Arguing that the current disciplinary divisions of academia - divisions produced by a previous crisis of knowledge - has left us trapped in a paradigm that assumes knowledge is a certainty that can help us explain the social world, Wallerstein offers us a new way of imagining the social sciences, one which allows for uncertainties and for methods of studying our world and its historical place.

From the Publisher:

The dilemmas faced by the social sciences from a world-renowned historian

From the Inside Flap:

"Immanuel Wallerstein is both a redoubtable world historian and visionary prophet. Such a combination is unusual...[and] makes him a commanding figure, whose rhetorical address, radical ideas, and remarkable erudition challenge ordinary, established patterns of professional discourse."
—William H. McNeill, Diplomatic History

"Wallerstein draws on his historical erudition and formidable theoretical powers to cast light on the ongoing transformation of our society. Even more impressive, he dares to think about the future."
—Frances Fox Piven

"Wallerstein is always readable, often persuasive, and occasionally profound."
—Michael Mann, The British Journal of Sociology
