The rubric "The Late Derrida," with all puns and ambiguities cheerfully intended, points to the late work of Jacques Derrida, the vast outpouring of new writing by and about him in the period roughly from 1994 to 2004. In this period Derrida published more than he had produced during his entire career up to that point. At the same time, this volume deconstructs the whole question of lateness and the usefulness of periodization. It calls into question the "fact" of his turn to politics, law, and ethics and highlights continuities throughout his oeuvre.The scholars included here write of...

The structure/agency debate has been among the central issues in recent discussions of social theory. It has been widely assumed that the key theoretical task is to find a link between social structures and acting human beings - to reconcile the macro with the micro, society and the individual.
The contributors to this book reject this solution to the problem. For them, both the concept of 'society' as an entity and the freely-acting 'individual' are theoretical fiction. Rather, the immediate task of the social sciences is to take the social world seriously, to understand the w...

Diagnosis, the classification tool of medicine, serves an important social role. It confers social status on those who diagnose, and it impacts the social status of those diagnosed. Studying diagnosis from a sociological perspective offers clinicians and students a rich and sometimes provocative view of medicine and the cultures in which it is practiced. Social Issues in Diagnosis describes how diagnostic labels and the process of diagnosis are anchored in groups and structures as much as they are in the interactions between patient and doctor.
The sociological perspective is i...

OpenGrounds is a University of Virginia initiative that builds on a legacy of innovation to create new programs, places, and partnerships; to catalyze new approaches to important challenges; and to inspire new collaborations across and beyond the "Grounds." The university was founded as a revolutionary reinvention of higher education. Thomas Jefferson recognized the need for a different kind of institution whose aims and methods aligned with the tenets of the Age of Reason, where the search for knowledge would be unfettered by previous models of thought and institutional constraints. To mee...

"In seventh moon Fire Star west goes;
In ninth we make dresses all day long.
By and by warm spring grows
And golden orioles sing their song.
The lasses take their baskets deep
And go along the small pathways
To gather tender mulberry leaves in heap
When lengthen the vernal days,
They pile in heaps the southernwood,
Their heart in gloomy mood,
For they will say adieu to maidenhood."
The "Book of Songs," also known as the Confucian "Odes," is one of the main pillars of the Chinese classical literary canon. This accessible version of the "Book of Songs" is d...
