Critical Transitions interrogates the terms and concepts most central to the urgent task of examining cultural change as a process of dynamic transition. This volume approaches the question of transition from multiple perspectives, demonstrating how the highly politicized spheres of cultural production, scientific invention and intellectual discourse are entangled in the contemporary world. The volume gathers specially commissioned essays, organized into five clusters of concepts - boundaries, organization, rupture, novelty, futurity - by leading and emerging thinkers in the arts, humanities and social sciences, and spanning fields including geography, literary studies, cultural theory, philosophy, and politics.
