UNIVERSALISM AND AMBIGUOSNESS: COMMENTS ON WAGAR ' S PRAXIS OF WORLD INTEGRATION

  • Teivo Teivainen University of Helsinki

Abstract

Theoretical discourses that emphasize difference, fragmentation and contingency have presented various challenges to the social sciences of today. The political implications of these discourses have generally been expressed in rather vague terms and often simply left unspecified. In this context, W. Warren Wagar's bold and provocative defence of the universalist values of the European Enlightenment is a most welcome contribution.
