Front Cover
LIT Verlag Münster, 2005 - Social Science - 151 pages
0 Reviews
This collection explores the social legacy of European Enlightenment ideas of science and rationality. In their deployment, science and rationality were intended to give rise to open and democratic societies. The volume addresses the history of these notions while centering on ethnographic studies of openness and equitability in contemporary European social milieu, as well as in post-colonial Europe and on Europe's increasingly global "fringes."

Nigel Rapport holds the Canada Research Chair in Globalization, Citizenship and Justice at the Concordia University of Montreal, Canada.
