About this book

A philosophical-cultural exploration, this book expands the discussion of "class" from a novel perspective. Following the current debates about wealth and class, the contributors address the social and cultural phenomena of class from a uniquely innovative philosophical approach and reconsider philosophical "givens" within the context of culture.

Reviews

"That class is an exceedingly and evermore complex phenomenon is hardly a reason to ignore its importance as a category for understanding society, either in national frameworks or in the world as a whole. There were very good reasons why other categories, such as race, gender, and sexuality, came to the fore in recent decades, one of these reasons being the difficulties in hitherto-existing paradigms to understand modes of production in all of their diverse materiality. The essays in this important book show well how class, complexified, remains crucial to not only understanding the world, but indeed to changing it." - Bill Martin, Professor of Philosophy, DePaul University, USA
