Alternatives In Transition: The Postmodern, Glocality And Social Justice
by Lim, William S. W.
About This Book
The most recent collection of articles by renowned Singapore architect and intellectual William Lim, who is rapidly establishing himself as a "post-modernist" thinker. It includes special projects completed between 1998 and 2001. The material in this book embraces a broad range of subjects, touching on culture, society, and urbanism, and presents alternative views informed by the latest debates on glocality, post-modernity and social justice.
In the wake of globalisation, Asia must embrace a profound intellectual debate of alternatives that does not lend itself to hegemonic, unilinear thinking. The Asian alternative perspective offers no simple answer, no singular pathway, but more significantly, a diversity of views and an open dialogue that could propel the direction of future intellectual discourse. The author offers some of his perspectives in this discourse.
