I used this text for my Society and Self course for this Spring semester. It was an excellent text for this course and my students liked it
This is a highly recommended text in every respect. It covers significant depth of analysis on reality. It is particularly relevant for social science courses exploring ontological perspectives.
The text explores all the major theoretical perspectives, developing the concept of reality from areas including language, identity and culture.
The text is ideal for any course exploring aspects of reality, including from a social research perspective.
This book, although of potential interest to some postgraduate students, goes too far beyond theories that can be reasonably expected to inform the work of pre-doctoral students. It is a very useful read for lecturers who would like to challenge the usual teleological nature of science or knowledge propagated in undergraduate education.
This book is an excellent reader for a qualitative and theory-driven approach to Social Psychology.
