The relevance and reliability of human science are no more beyond dispute. The studies in this book are prompted by epistemological concerns representing various ways in which social knowledge is produced. It attempts to explore approaches and methods apt to meet crucial questions of legitimacy and validity ? questions which threaten the credibility and usefulness of social sciences. The focus is on the processes which tend to modify established orders with regard to values or representations, attitudes or practices, codes or norms, institutions or ideologies. The concern here is primarily with the agency of any subaltern agent. Contents: 1. Cultural Strategies 2. Method and Objectives 3. Three Challenges 4. Four Methodological Stakes 5.
