Summary
In this book Eagleton launches a critique of postmodern 'culturalism, ' arguing for a more complex relation between culture and nature, and trying to retrieve the importance of such concepts as human nature from a non-naturalistic perspective. His book sets its face against a certain fashionable populism in this area, as well as drawing attention to the deficiencies of elitism. It makes radical inquiry into the reasons, both creditable and discreditable, why 'culture' has come in our own period to bulk as large as it does, and proposes that it is time, while acknowledging its significance, to put it back in its place
