The first part of the book examines existing theories of development. None is sacred: using empirical material drawn from the historical experience of advanced capitalist and socialist states, China and the distinct regions of the Third World, Worsley evaluates and synthesises the Marxist approach with that of social anthropologists. He identifies culture -- in the sense of a shared set of values -- as the key element missing in more traditional approaches to the sociology of development and considers its use by writers as diverse as Coleridge, Eliot and Raymond Williams.
Knowledges : culture, counterculture, subculture by Peter Worsley ( Book )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 546 libraries worldwide
"In this bold, wide-ranging, and ambitious work, Worsley makes a powerful case for the plurality of knowledge systems. He questions our definitions of culture by looking at the ways cultures are differentiated within the group or national boundaries that are thought to contain them, and the ways in which they spill out of those borders to feed into a global mass society. On the way, he treats us to a lively and accessible examination of the diversity of Australian aboriginal thought."--Jacket.
