This book tells the story of how the very idea of two cultures-theso-called divorce between science and the humanities-was acreation of the modern world-system. The contributors, workingfrom a common research framework, trace the divorce of facts and values as part of the transition from feudalism to capitalism.This led to a polarization between universalist science and theparticularist humanities and finally to the creation of the socialsciences as an uneasy intermediary in this epistemological debate.The book addresses the contemporary attempts to overcome thedivision between the two cultures that emerge from science,feminism, race and ethnic studies, cultural studies, and ecology,ending with an analysis of the culture wars and the science wars.Contributors: Volkan Aytar, Ayse Betul Celik, Mauro Di Meglio,Mark Frezzo, Ho-fung Hung, Biray Kollouthglu K3/4rl3/4, Agustin Lao-Montes, Eric Mielants, Boris Stremlin, Sunaryo, NorihisaYamashita, Deniz Yukeseker.
