Problems of Reflexivity and Dialectics in Sociological Inquiry : Language Theorizing Difference Hardback
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Social Theory series
This is a work of social theory and philosophy which seeks to make the constitution of social theory a `social' activity.
It is essentially a collaborative text, by five authors, committed to a re-awakening of some of the forgotten dimensions of social theorizing.
The collaborative work was originally occasioned by an attempt to analyse the notion of social stratification and its treatment in the sociological tradition.
The authors' main concern here is with the nature of social theorizing, and in particular the `difference' between Self and Other, being and beings, Language and Speech.
The papers in the book focus on themes that are fundamental to the sense of inquiry and tradition which they are concerned to display.
The themes discussed include speech, Language, Identity, Difference, Critical Tradition, Community, Metaphor, Dialectics, Observing and Reading.
