Mind in Action

Front Cover
Humanities Press International, 1989 - Psychology - 158 pages
Mind in Action explores recent developments in the sociology of knowledge, and highlights the shift away from traditional?particularly Cartesian?conceptions of person, mind and social behavior. The author argues that a new "epistemic" sociology has emerged in which the central focus is the social construction of the intelligibility of phenomena, in everyday practical affairs as well as within the conduct of scientific inquiry. This approach is documented with lucid examples, and is shown to make possible a radical re-thinking of the "cognizing subject."
