2009: The Politics of Method

(p.237) Conclusion
Identities and Social Change in Britain since 1940

Mike Savage

Oxford University Press

This chapter sums up arguments about the politics of method and the key findings of this study on socio-cultural change in Great Britain during the period between 1940 and 1970. It describes the battery of techniques and methods that could be used to expose the social tissue during the post-war decades, and the technical identities associated with them. The chapter also highlights how the social sciences systematically conceal their own tracks through their deployment of ethical issues as a kind of screen that distinguishes past from present.

Keywords:   politics of method, socio-cultural change, Great Britain, social tissue, technical identities, social sciences
