The Bio‐Medical Model and Ageing: Towards an Anti‐Reductionist Model?Powell, Jason; Owen, Tim; University of Chester; UCLan (Emerald, 2005-09-10)Anti‐reductionist social theory is a relatively ‘new’ but methodically eclectic body of theory which analyses the complexity of the tripartite theory, policy and practice.
Reconstructing PostmodernismPowell, Jason; Owen, Tim; University of Chester; UCLan (Nova Science Publishers, 2007-08-23)There has been an array of literature on the notion of 'postmodernism' in social science literature in recent years. This exciting book focuses on three broad continuities: one, debunking the central theoretical tenets of postmodernism with reference to identity, methodology, governance and modernist theory; two, the book engages with current social issues and events in popular culture: for example, film; professional power, masculinity and terrorism; three, the book also rethinks postmodernism in light of under-researched variables of analysis of time and ageing, the 'body', ‘biology’ and 'choice'.
