Susen, S. (2016). Further Reflections on the “Postmodern Turn” in the Social Sciences: A Reply to William Outhwaite. International Journal of Politics, Culture, and Society, 29(4), pp. 429-438. doi: 10.1007/s10767-016-9230-x

Abstract

I am immensely grateful to William Outhwaite for commenting on my book The ‘Postmodern Turn’ in the Social Sciences (Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2015). I should stress at the outset that I agree with most of the points he makes in his commentary, which I find very insightful, thought-provoking, and constructive. Hence, any reader expecting to be entertained by a cockfight between book author and book reviewer will be disappointed. Let me take this opportunity to reflect on some of the main issues raised in Outhwaite’s inspiring review.
