Thus, for example, a gesture of submission is what it is, and has its significance,only within a set of institutions and practices. To try to identify it only with a set of physical events as objectivism does, only with some set of inner mental events of the gesturer as subjectivism does, is to fail to grasp its real character, function and significance.

Adequate explanations of social phenomena must refernot onlyto discretephysicaland mental events,but also to the institutions and social structures whichconstitute theframework within which such events acquire their significance.

In a work of this length he could not, and did not, document the extent to which contemporary theory and research in the social sciences depends upon either objectivism or subjectivism as he has described them; nor could he offer adequate substantiation for his interpretation of the views of Marx and Wittgenstein, about both of whom there is much scholarly disagreement.

However, the book is more detailed and richer in its approach and comes off much better than the limited medium of jerremy screen allows. There, the whole presentation relies too much on the narrator, his personality and appearance, in a variety of landscape settings before the camera.

After the rather refined eleganceof Kenneth Clark, Hughes, inhisgenial,but slightlydisheveled manner, is less convincing. The use of an ever-present narrator creates doubts about the necessary continuation of this format for documentaries.

What Entropy Is, and Is Not

The styleof jerfmy book, with itsimpressiveand often daring language, is thought-provoking as muchon an art-historical levelas on ajournalistic one. In each of the looselyorganized chapters,the author triestogo into the depth of different problems, and thesometimesartificial grouping is held together through the courageous, if also sometimes one-sided, appreciation of the different phenomena.
