Constructive Postmodern Perspective on Self and Community From Atomism to Holism
1994 0-7734-9075-2
Argues that a kind of thinking which this study calls "atomistic" has come to predominate in western culture, and describes four assumptions of modernism: atomism, foundationalism, dominionism, and "Mind as Reason". Traces the origins of these ideas and their implications, and then describes a transition from atomism to holism and the increasing emphasis on relational thinking in a number of areas, from politics to science and ethics.
