|Words and Concepts||
w w w . a l a s t a i r h u d s o n . c o m
This collection of short discussions of a variety of what I consider to be the key words and concepts in social thought is here for two reasons.
The references to the many books and occasional periodicals can be found in the bibliography file. I have tried where possible to restrict those references to books which are fairly easily obtainable from booksellers or libraries (in the UK at least, or through web-based booksellers).
The words and concepts considered here are follows (click on the name to view the file - a word which does not have a link is simply a word for which I have not yet published a file):
So feel free to wander around.
Updating: as with the rest of this site all of these discussions are works in progress - so don't huff if they are not perfect and don't be surprised if I have not yet considered all of the available texts. These vignettes will be updated regularly as the site expands.
The benefit of this system: The advantage for me of writing this in the form of a web-site is that I can move from idea to idea - and allow you to move on a whim from idea to idea - at the click of a mouse instead of needing us both to commit to a single linear structure in the form of a book. It is in the system section that I try to meld all of these ideas into a more coherent, more linear structure - that section, needless to say, will tend to be the slowest to emerge.
