Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am puzzled by this book? I bought it on the strength of the cover notes, which described rather carefully the symbiotic connection between our "inner lives" (our internal psychological world), and our "outer lives" (its intersection with society). Yet while also reiterating the importance of this theme in the preface, the authors then proceed to treat the topics as if the two had absolutely nothing to do with each other.

Initially I thought that this book just suffered from the "edited book disease:" the stringing together of a series of seemingly related topics, hoping that something would fall together and that the reader would not recognize that "juxtaposition" does not exactly equal "integration," or even interconnections. Here it is even worse than that: These authors appear to think that "interactions" equal "interconnections," and that adding up the various "partitionings" and "fragmentations" of the substance of the two fields can in and of itself, in the end, somehow through the operation of addition alone, add up to a "whole?"

They can not. The substance of this book is much less than the sum of its parts. And moreover, just calling a framework "interactional," does not make it one. Somewhere a minimal set of connections between day-to-day interactions and a larger framework of understanding at either the sociological or psychological level must be made, and done so in a clear and explicit way, otherwise this is just "slight of mind theorizing," which is a kind of "theorizing by fiat," or in other words, no theorizing at all.

Like many others, this was textbook for a sociology class. This particular text it dense, and not what many college students would consider a "fun" or "quick" read.

Not that textbooks have to be enjoyable, after all they're here to teach, but certainly many of the best intellectuals I've had the pleasure of speaking to and reading -- try to narrate and make things enjoyable for the reader.

This text, not so much.
