Values and Identities: Crossing Philosophical Borders

Series edited by Paul Crowther and Tsarina Doyle

No society can exist without values, yet with the accelerating pace of technological and societal transformations, it is increasingly difficult to determine how values are to be understood and to be negotiated when in conflict. How do values define human identity and the different activities through which this identity finds expression?

Values and Identities: Crossing Philosophical Borders publishes research-led monographs and edited collections that face this problem head on. Titles in this series investigate specific forms of value and, in particular, how they interact across societal contexts to form more complex identities. The series encourages methodological distinctiveness in contemporary terms through the sustained integration of theory and conceptual issues with modes of historical and empirical research.

This exciting new series is a major initiative involving close cooperation between Rowman and Littlefield International and the Values and Identities research cluster in the Moore Institute at the National University of Ireland, Galway.

The series welcomes proposals for monographs and well-curated edited collections that pioneer new directions of inquiry.
