"Charles Taylor presents a fundamental challenge to neoliberal apologists for the new world order-but not only to them. Anyone who wishes, as I do, to defend transcultural political ideals, notions of development, or the like, will have to face his formidable array of hermeneutically inspired reflections on Western modernity's defining cultural formations. His particular take on the 'social imaginary' makes the strongest case there is for the idea of 'multiple modernities.'"-Thomas McCarthy, Northwestern University
