Abstract

This article is a critical appraisal of Anne Phillips' book titled "Multiculturalism without culture". The author uses a number of works and practical examples of ethnic, gender and class identities to debunk the myth that there is homogeneity of culture within groups accorded the same cultural status. There are interesting and sometimes insightful reviews of the concepts of culture, race and gender which force the reader to cogitate about the fallacies of modernism as a scientific paradigm in the study of social life (issues and problems).
