Dismantling the Public Sphere : Situating and Sustaining Librarianship in the Age of the New Public Philosophy (Contributions in Librarianship and Information Science)

ISBN: 031332199X;
Издательство: Libraries Unlimited

This work presents a thorough examination of librarianship and the social and economic contexts in which the profession and its institutions operate. As a basis of analysis, Buschman employs critical education scholarship and the research of German philosopher Jurgen Habermas, whose seminal work on the public sphere--the arena in which the public organizes itself and formulates public opinion--serves as a meta-framework for Buschman's study of librarianship.
