Book Description

Reclaiming Knowledge asserts the necessity of a strong view of knowledge for a robust sociology of knowledge, for both researching the curriculum and developing policy. Divided into four sections or investigations, the central question underlying this book is how, in a world of uncertainty and challenge, do we develop a responsible knowledge practice?
