Abstract:

"Charles Taylor is a philosopher concerned with morality and the nature of the identity of individuals and groups in the modern West. Dr. Fraser offers a critical evaluation of Taylor's conception of the self, and of its moral and political possibilities in modernity, from the perspective of Marxist dialectics, especially as developed in the writings of Block, Benjamin and Adorno. What distinguishes this book is its plainly critical intent, aiming more at criticism than exegesis. It includes an up-to-date evaluation of Taylor's most recent, and explicitly religious, work to which older introductions to his thinking had no access."--Jacket.
