Sample text

Gerard Mullally was awarded his doctorate on the Sociology of Sustainable Development in Ireland at University College Cork, where he is a lecturer and co-ordinator of postgraduate studies in the Department of Sociology. Gerard was previously a researcher in the Centre for European Social Research (1992–1997) and Programme Manager for Regional Sustainable Development in the Cleaner Production Promotion Unit, University College Cork (1998–2004). He is a member of the international advisory panels of several journals including Eco-politics Online, Innovation: the European Journal of Social Science Research and the Journal of Environmental Policy and Planning.

This leads neatly into his discussion of the Irish case, which forms the third pillar of his analysis. The Irish case shows a shift from ‘governance as hierarchy to new more flexible forms of governance’, but its specific characterization and whether it fits under the rubric of post-corporatism is open to debate. Equally in relation to Irish civil society there seems to be problems of clear definition as the voluntary sector occupies its core and the boundary between the state and civil society is ambiguous.

He places before the reader the possibility of dichotomous challenges in Strydom’s work: ‘a political process but also a spiritual process’ and between epistemic and ontological processes. He speaks about ‘going beyond the dualism’ this presents and seeks in Strydom’s approach the ‘creative pathways’ to make bridges, in a sense loosening the theory from its continental genesis. In this journey he pushes Strydom’s work into an innovative and from a western philosophical perspective somewhat new terrain.
