The Social Life of Nothing
27th August 2019
Writing a book about nothing is an obvious paradox, but Susie Scott has achieved it and has developed a powerful approach to explaining those things that we don't do and that are often more important than the things that we do. If you are doing nothing, you might like to read her book!
Interaction and Social Structure
11th April 2018
Some of the most powerful approaches in sociology are those that analyse the interactions of individuals. These are often seen as in opposition to more abstract views of social structure. I want to argue that this is not the case and that the two approaches are complementary and imply each other. I will develop this argument in this post and will take the argument further in a later post.
