Long DescriptionToday people's cultural identities are increasingly invoked in support of political claims, and these claims commonly lead to acrimony and violence. But what is 'cultural identity', and what is its political significance? This book offers a provocatively sceptical answer to these questions. Tracing the idea back to the now largely discredited notion of national character, it argues that cultural identity is no deep going feature of individual psychology. Nor is it any uniform phenomenon. Rather, various types of so-called cultural identity emerge in response to the different circumstances people face. Such identities are marked by merely surface features of behaviour and these have a principally aesthetic appeal. In consequence, it is argued, cultural identities lack the ethical significance claimed for them and their invocation is in many ways politically pernicious. The book engages not only with thinkers in the analytic tradition like Isaiah Berlin, Charles Taylor and Will Kymlicka, but with Continental writers like Sartre and Kristeva.

By claiming your products, you gain a great deal of control over your products and company information. When you make changes, they don't need to be verified manually and other users cannot make any changes to your data.

Claiming your products is a rather simple process but it does involve a few steps. You simply need to give us a list of your products but then you need to verify your claim by entering a code we send to your email.

You also get to enter information about your company on the claim page. If you have multiple companies, you can control them all on your profile page once they are verified.

After you make your initial claim, we perform some processing on our side. Once the claim process is complete, you get full control over all of your products and company information. You get to control your product details and images. You can modify the contact information for your company and upload a company logo.

To get started with the process, you can search for one of your products and click the CLAIM link found at the bottom of the product information block. You can also go directly to the CLAIM PAGE. Once on that page, simply follow the on screen instructions to complete the claim process.

If you want to send us data about your products instead of simply claiming existing products or entering new information by hand, you can always send us a data file and we can import it for you.
