Everyday Life, Hardback Book


This book, first published in 1984, examines the politics and philosophy of ordinary men and women, and their ordinary transactions.

It analyses the interaction between the individual and the social, both for the roots of everyday behaviour and for the means to change the social fabric.

Using an approach that combines Marx, Husserl, Heidegger and Aristotle, Agnes Heller defines categories such as 'group', 'crowd', 'community', and deals with characteristics of everyday life such as repetition, rules, norms, economics, habits, probability, imitation.

She also analyses everyday knowledge, and concludes by looking at the place of personality in everyday life.
