Editorial Reviews

Review

"Schatzki has produced a valuable and challenging book....All in all an excellent book." N. Garver, Choice

"...I heartily recommend this book to a much wider audience than might appear appropriate on the surface." Craig Squires, Philosophy in Review

"Throughout, Schatzki is a subtle reasoner and an articulate writer. His views are certainly important...." Stephen Satris, Review of Metaphysics

Book Description

This book addresses key topics in social theory such as the basic structures of social life, the character of human activity, and the nature of individuality. Drawing on the work of Wittgenstein, the author develops an account of social existence that argues that social practices are the fundamental phenomenon in social life. This approach offers new insight into the social formation of individuals, surpassing and critiquing the existing practice theories of Bourdieu, Giddens, Lyotard, and Oakeshott.
