The Person in the Sight of Sociology, Hardback Book

The Person in the Sight of Sociology Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Social Theory series

Description

Sociology is about society, but what about people? The person in the sight of sociology is all too often a matchstick being.

In this original and stimulating book the person is characterized by what is inherent in a social being, and the result is a rich narrative, the story of the person told through events in life.

The author holds that for sociological purposes, the person must be seen as perfect: perfectible, perfecting and perfect.

He outlines the `trialectical' nature of such a theory, offers a test of it in the making of madness and claims that such a change in vision is appropriate for the sociologist's critical engagement in the world.

It may be claimed that Colin Fletcher has created a new realm of theorizing and a piece of literature for sociology. And, perhaps as important, the reader may catch the rare experience of being spoken with as a person by another person.
