    Alasdair Macintyre: Critic of Modernity.Peter McMylor - 1993 - Routledge.
    This book is the first full length account of the significance of MacIntyre's work for the social sciences.

    Marxism and Christianity: Dependencies and Differences in Alasdair MacIntyre's Critical Social Thought.Peter McMylor - 2008 - Theoria: A Journal of Social and Political Theory 55 (116):45-66.

    Reflexive Historical Sociology: Consciousness, Experience and the Author.Peter McMylor - 2005 - History of the Human Sciences 18 (4):141-160.

Particular attention is paid to the innovative manner in which the work of the anthropologist Victor Turner is used to explore the biographies of these social theorists as in effect performative life-works in which crucial liminal periods and (...)
