Description

This book is concerned with the sociology of "everything that passes for knowledge in society", and particularly with that "common-sense knowledge" that constitutes the reality of everyday life for the ordinary member of society. The authors are concerned to present an analysis of knowledge in everyday life in the context of a theory of society as a dialectical process between objective and subjective reality. Their development of a theory of institutions, legitimations and socializations has implications beyond the discipline of sociology, and their "humanistic" approach has considerable relevance for other social scientists, historians, philosophers and anthropologists.
