    In this engaging and original book, John Clarke is in conversation with twelve leading scholars about the dynamics of thinking critically in the social sciences. The conversations range across many fields and explore the problems and possibilities of doing critical intellectual work in ways that are responsive to changing conditions.

    By emphasizing the many voices in play, in conversation with, as well as against, others, Clarke challenges the individualising myth of the heroic intellectual. He underlines the value of thinking critically, collaboratively and dialogically.

    The book also provides access to a sound archive of the original conversations.
