The field of phase transitions and critical phenomena continues to be active in research, producing a steady stream of interesting and fruitful results. It is no longer an area of specialist interest, but has moved into a central place in condensed matter studies. The major aim of this series is to provide review articles which can serve as standard references for research workers in the field, and for graduate students and others wishing to obtain reliable information on important recent developments. ...

The field of phase transitions and critical phenomena continues to be active in research, producing a steady stream of interesting and fruitful results. As the ideas and techniques of critical phenomena have found new areas of application, the field has moved on from being of specialist interest, to occupy a central place in condensed matter studies. This text is part of a series which provides review articles that can serve as standard references for research workers in the field and for graduate students and others wishing to obtain reliable information in important recent developments. ...

The authors have focussed attention on a number of concepts widely used by research workers but needing clarification and more careful definition, like metastable states, clusters, supercooling, spinodal decomposition. The material in this article is of great significance to all who are interested in phase transitions, but it has not in the past been given the attention it deserves. Since the authors have successfully undertaken the huge task of covering the relevant literature and describing its content concisely and coherently, this defect may perhaps be remedided in the near future. ...

The Vitality of Critical Theory

The Vitality of Critical Theory
2011 | 352 Pages | ISBN: 0857247972 | PDF | 2 MB

The common theme of this volume is that the critical theory of the Frankfurt School is as important today, if not more so, as it was at its inception during the 1930s. It looks at the distinguishing features of this tradition and how it is critical, yet also complementary, of other approaches in the social sciences, especially in sociology. The vanishing point of critical theory is not the replacement of diverse endeavors to illuminate the nature of modern society, rather, its purpose is to bundle overly fragmented perspectives that have been developed in theoretical sociology.

The common theme of this volume is that the critical theory of the Frankfurt School is as important today, if not more so, as it was at its inception during the 1930s. It looks at the distinguishing features of this tradition and how it is critical, yet also complementary, of other approaches in the social sciences, especially in sociology. The vanishing point of critical theory is not the replacement of diverse endeavors to illuminate the nature of modern society, rather, its purpose is to bundle overly fragmented perspectives that have been developed in theoretical sociology. It includes essays that address: the problematic analysis of political economy at the center of the early Frankfurt School, and the subsequent neglect of political economy; the continuing importance of alienation and reification as focal points of critical theory; differences in modes of critical theorizing during the twentieth century (with special emphases on Lukacs, Adorno, Habermas, and Postone); globalization as an analytical and normative challenge critical theorists are uniquely positioned to confront; and, the most problematic feature mainstream approaches in the social sciences have in common....
