This work continues the author's project begun in "The Flux of History and the Flux of Science". Tackling one of philosophy's key themes, it develops the controversial thesis that the world is a flux. Here it applies this doctrine to Western theories of history and the interpretation of cultural phenomena, offering sustained analysis of the logic, methodology and metaphysics of interpretation committed to a thorough-going relativism and the historicized structure of cultural phenomena. Versed in Anglo-American and Continental philosophy, Margolis draws on the best views of Western philosophy to investigate a topic regularly ignored in that tradition. The result is the surprising synthesis of two historically antipathetic approaches to philosophy.
