About this title


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
