Summary

"Creative Social Research calls for a fundamental reconceptualization and transformation of contemporary research methods in the social sciences. Leading scholars from a variety of disciplines and geographies establish the ways in which the traditions of non-Western societies and contemporary global developments can be incorporated into current social science discourse, greatly enriching it beyond most of the existing paradigms and approaches. Creative Social Research sheds new light on social theory and calls for a new articulation of the practice and ideal of understanding at the levels of self, culture, and society."--BOOK JACKET.
