    1 thought on “La construction sociale de la réalité”

    1. This is quite an interesting book. Its main thesis is an attempt to tie together epistemology and sociology. TO SUMMARIZE: Thought is a social construct. Our ways of thinking are influenced by our ancestors and traditions. There's also Wittgenstein's baby - how language affects thought.Of course, after watching both political conventions over the past two weeks, it is necessary to discuss the political role of this idea. One could see it being discussed by reformers/radicals, who want to change [...]

    2. Political thought since the Enlightenment has turned largely on an apparent opposition between society and the individual. From this has emerged a libertarian argument that society and social facts are actually meaningless notions. Philosophy has largely lost interest in the question with the advent of positivism, yet positivism is itself a contentious proposition. The validity of the idea of “society” has been taken up in two books with maddeningly similar titles. The first, The Constructio [...]

    3. I like this:I am conscious of the world as consisting of multiple realities. As I move from one reality to another, I experience the transition as a kind of shock. This shock is to be understood as caused by the shift in attentiveness that the transition entails. Waking up from a dream illustrates this shift most simply (p. 21).This reminds me of a passage from Pedro Calderon de la Barca's Life is a DreamDreams are rough copies of the waking soul Yet uncorrected of the higher Will,So that men so [...]

    4. One of the first books that really opened my eyes to epistemology and the sociology of knowledge. A must-read for anyone who wants to understand the social construction of knowledge and reality.

    5. La sociología ha sido tradicionalmente discriminada de alguno círculos científicos por su polémica concepción de integrar a los seres humanos en bases de comportamiento general, es decir, estudiar a los grupos humanos como conjuntos coherentes y similares, donde la individualidad y excentricidad de cada uno queda relegado a un segundo plano y de aceptar esta visión de comportamiento de manada.No obstante, como ocurre en muchos casos con la filosofía también, esta clase de libros ha permi [...]

    6. Peter Berger and Thomas Luckmann define reality as “a phenomenon that we recognize as having a being independent of our own volition.” However, it is evident that humans themselves create their own form of realities and eventually have extreme belief that their realities are actually real. Then, how objective can our reality be if we cannot avoid bias?Society is a human product. “Man’s relationship to his environment is characterized by world-openness.” Humans are species who are molda [...]

    7. A very good introduction to constructivist perspectives on the social. It anticipates some of Foucault's and Goffman's theories, among others. This work deserves way more recognition.

    8. Berger's Social Construction of Reality is a thorough and concise expression of a lot of things I'd already learned or intuited about the topic. This is a nice thing to have, cementing a lot of thoughts in place and confirming that I had indeed understood the concepts accurately. And Berger's writing is nowhere near as impenetrable and arcane as I'd expected it would be. His style is a bit ornate, using unusual phrasings and word variants, but it's all straightforward enough to parse on a first [...]

    9. While verbose and redundant at times, this is a fascinating look at how humans create the cultural structures that produce reality and identity. While it is easy to detect some cynicism at times regarding objective reality, the authors do a decent job of presenting the material--even if they occasionally make sweeping statements that may not be true.

    10. I read this back in my junior year of high school along with several others by the author, but my mind comes back to it again and again. It is both an insightful and a readable exploration of how society builds plausibility structures and colors our perception of reality.

    11. Wie schreibt man über ein Buch, das viele wertvolle und zum Nachdenken anregende Gedanken enthält, während man der gesamten These des Buches diametral gegenüber steht? Kein einfaches Unterfangen, wie ich immer wieder feststellen muss. Vielleicht ist der beste Einstieg ins Thema mit einem Zitat von Neil Postman gefunden. Postman schreibt zu den Sozialwissenschaften: „Ich nenne die Forschungen dieser Leute Geschichtenerzählen, weil das Wort darauf hinweist, dass der Verfasser einer solchen [...]

    12. In places I thought this book was mind-blowingly good in that I totally 100% agreed with some of its references to culture and how our thought and language in particular goes about moulding the reality around us and, by repetition, the culture we begin to form both as individuals and then as amalgamations of these individual cultures. In other places I totally didn’t have a scooby dooby doo what the book was on about and found myself skipping and whizzing through it. Here are some of the inter [...]

    13. Berger and Luckmann provide a theoretical sketch of how knowledge works in society – not theoretical knowledge, and not philosophical knowledge, but knowledge in general. They outline how humans are born into a particular world, characterized by their face-to-face interactions and their everyday conversations – these interactions and conversations are the “real world” to all of us. Although our reality is arbitrarily created by human interaction, it becomes very real in social institutio [...]

    14. This is not an easy read by any means,as it was aimed at stimulating academic discussion in the sixties and as such some of the theories are explained in a very convoluted and academic manner. Thankfully the authors recognised the importance of communicating their views to a wider public and provided alternative explanations and numerous and often off beat humorous examples to elucidate the theories under discussion. The book,as I see it,attempts to explain how far human interaction affects the [...]

    15. I'm reading this for a class at school (like all the other books on my currently-reading shelf) and it is painful. I don't fully understand it until we have discussed it in class but it is full of ideas that I've never come across before and that change the way I think about knowledge and reality. The language is definitely from the 1960's though, apparently the only people who think about such things are men.Update:Almost finished with the class (almost as painful as the book) and the more we d [...]

    16. From what I understand, this is a central text of 20th Century sociology, and really the book that introduced social constructionism to the general public, which, of course, is one of the most abused and misunderstood and unfairly maligned and unreasonably exalted concepts of 20th Century thought in general.And, for those of us who have come of intellectual age in an American scene permeated with social constructionism and its innumerable offshoots, it makes a lot of sense, in the same bluff way [...]

    17. A sociologist's book on epistemology. While not everyone I share the ideas with agrees with them, most everyone agrees that this book provides some of the most useful tools for identifying different ways of thinking about reality that they've ever seen. I'm rereading the book now, so I'll likely further expand on this once I'm through, but I can't recommend it enough as a source of valuable intro- and extro- spection about the world that we create through our understanding.

    18. A masterpiece. No one needs me to tell them how important this book is to sociology. Like a lot of theory, the language can sometimes be daunting because the wordy clarifications needed. Over all it is a fairly easy and quick read which I know I will return to again and again.

    20. This book is absolutely beautiful; clearly the authors had a mastery of the English language. I have to stop reading at points just out of sheer enjoyment. So far, this is the best and most interesting sociology book I've read. It really "pulls back the curtain" of how our world is constructed (hence the title). I would definitely recommend it. Some gems include:"No historical situation can be understood except on its own terms""Society determines the presence, but not the nature, of ideas""No h [...]

    21. V této knize autoři se pokouší vysvětlit způsob, jakým vnímáme a vytváříme skutečnost. Jeden z nejdůležitějších poznatků, ke kterému se neustále vrací, je dialektický vztah mezi jedincem a společností, mezi vnímáním a tvorbou, mezi kontrolou, zachováváním současného stavu a možností a někdy nutností změny, transformace. Současně, z mého úhlu pohledu, je to zajímavá ukázka, jak těžké je popisovat něco tak základního. Autoři poukazují na důlež [...]

    22. Chock-full of fascinating concepts. A crash-course in sociology. Now, the book is divided into three parts, and while there are wonderful flashes of lucidity (at least every few pages)unfortunately 2/3 of these parts are bogged down in dense, unloving, jargon. Shivery, chilly, technical verbiage which thunks against one's molars as one attempts to masticate and digest. Plenty of grit which gets jammed in your gums. Frankly, it becomes a slog. A worthwhile read, but only for determined seekers of [...]

    23. Don't get me wrong, there were a few ideas I came across in here that I found interesting. However, reading nearly 200 pages for those few interesting ideas didn't really seem worth it to me. Though the prose style was fun to read at times, I found it to be dry and opaque for the most part. Also, keep in mind that this book was first published in 1966. I wonder if many of the authors' ideas have become part of the modern social stock of knowledge, thus not making for such an enjoyable read in 20 [...]

    24. Although this is an interesting subject, and all info presented in this publication is true and worth of attention, I think it was presented rather poorly. The style of writing is so distracting - when it isn't dry as a bone, then it is straying so much from the main point in various analogies that you occasionaly don't know what are you reading about any more.

    25. The first two or three chapters are extremely difficult to understand especially in audiobook format. The extensive use of complex vocabulary combined with almost no pronouns make sentences dense and hard to parse. The book does open up in later chapters and the points are quite interesting and raise several questions about how realities are formed through social interactions.

    26. Cu toate ca nu are rigoarea unui studiu stiintific sau chiar si filosofic, cartea asta e bine documentata. O demonstreaza notele de fundal de pe fiecare pagina a sa. Este scrisa de doi specialisti care incearca sa sintetizeze si sa impace sociologia cunoasterii cu filosofia si istoria.

    27. This book changed my thinking processes irrevocably, back when I was in my first year of Masters.
