Book Summary

Detailed

The question of modernity and the problem of cultural Identity have been intensively debated from various point of views. Three concepts of identity have been appreciated and emerged from lively deliberations during this discourse. First concept being essentialist concept of identity has been defined to be one which is generated through self-experience as self-evident. The second being post-modern concept referred to as one which is independent of socio-influences and likewise the third concept as realized in recent times is that is based on realist view of identity.

According to this view identity is fundamental element of socio-liberation and oppression. The book presents these three views of identity and their possible role in obviating and addressing the problems with possible alternatives. If so implemented how they could bring the social, individual and eventual leads in the society. This book will certinly present a number of new solutions to the existing (current) problems.
