Objectivity is not neutrality : explanatory schemes in history by Thomas L Haskell( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Objectivity Is Not Neutrality, Haskell argues for a moderate historicism that acknowledges the force of perspective and reaffirms the pluralistic practices of a liberal democratic society - even while upholding time-honored distinctions between fact and fiction, scholarship and propaganda, right and might. Rather than simply telling stories of events or delivering the historian's familiar "report from the archives," Haskell address questions that will interest philosophers and literary theorists no less than historians. In this book terms such as moral obligation, convention, interest, and formalism take on a new and sometimes troubling significance
The Culture of the market : historical essays by Thomas L Haskell( Book )

28 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scholars have only recently begun to appreciate the extent to which the norms and practices that foster market societies have been shifting. Not only has 'the market' been perceived and represented differently in different epochs; it has also been experienced differently, brought into being within dissimilar political and social settings, and has given rise to new and various forms of intellectual and imaginative activity. The thirteen essays collected in this volume belong to a new historical endeavour deriving from the recognition that the experiences and feelings engendered by the historical development of market societies have been, and still remain, open to a broad range of interpretations. They share, too, the characteristic accents of a new approach to cultural history, in which careful examination of actions, texts, and artifacts is accompanied by an open-mindedness about what their examination reveals
