The Social Construction of Reality


Source: avi_acl


The basic contentions of the argument of this book are implicit in its title and subtitle, namely, that reality is socially constructed and that the sociology of knowledge must analyse the processes in which this occurs. The key terms in these contentions are ‘knowledge’ and ‘reality’, terms that are not only current in everyday speech, but that have behind them a long history of philosophical inquiry.
