Item description for The Idea of Culture (Blackwell Manifestos) by Eagleton...

Culture is said to be one of the two or three most complex words in the English language, and the term which is sometimes considered to be its opposite - Nature - is commonly awarded the accolade of being the most complex of all. Terry Eagleton's book focuses on discriminating different meanings of culture, as a way of introducing to the general reader the contemporary debates around it. In what amounts to a major statement, with pointed relevance to the world in the new millennium, Eagleton launches a critique of postmodern culturalism, arguing instead for a more complex relation between Culture and Nature, and trying to retrieve the importance of such concepts as human nature from a non-naturalistic perspective. It makes radical inquiry into the reasons, both creditable and discreditable, why culture has come in our own period to bulk as large as it does, and provocatively proposes that it is time, while acknowledging its significance, to put it back in its place.
