For those of you who are new to social constructionism this book will provide a thought provoking, and at times (pleasantly) challenging, introduction to some of the key debates within the discipline. Those of you who are more familiar with this topic will find many interesting chapters that unpick some of the central problems that face contemporary social consteructionist theory, in particular, issues of embodiment, materiality and, to a lesser extent power. For anyone interested in this area of psychology this is a must-have text.

4.0 out of 5 stars Making Social Constructionism a "Thing" 22 May 2003
By Michael Tonos - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is actually a five-star read for persons inquiring into social constructionist psychology. One of Rom Harre's contributions addresses and dispells the myth that social constructionism MUST deny (or perpetually challenge the concept) a physical reality. In doing so, his contribution to this text makes it a must-read for folks in and out of the social constructionism circle. Four stars were given only because social constructionism begs to elude definition and insists upon constant reflection and change. Thankfully, this book breaks that mold, even for a moment.
