Book Summary of Ideology; An Introduction Ideology has never been so much in evidence as a fact and so little understood as a concept as it is today. In this now classical work, originally written for both newcomes to the topics and those already familiar with the debate, Terry Eagleton unravels the many different definitions of ideology, and explores the concept's tortuous history from the Enlightenment to postmodernism. The book provides lucid interpretations of the thought of key Marxist thinkers as well as of Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Freud and the various post-structuralists. Now updated in the light of current theoretical debates, this essential text by one of our most important contemporary cirticis clarifies a notoriously confused subject. About Author : Terry Eagleton is Professor of Cultural Theory and John Rylands Fellow, Univesity of Manchester.
