Identities and Interactions: An Examination of Human Associations in Everyday Life

£19.99

Product description

An original and provocative study of human associations, Identities and Interactions examines the entire range of conditions as well as the social and psychological variables that are involved in human interaction experiences. Emphasizing the seemingly simple question of WHO comes together to engage in WHAT social acts, WHEN, and WHERE, the authors reveal the innumerable and unexpected complexities researchers must be able to deal with in the study of socialized man. Clearly developed and objectively presented, their exposition of the social self becomes the basis for understanding individual conduct.
Ordinary persons in familiar situations are the main concern of this book. With due regard for both humanism and effective scientific methodology, every idea is presented in terms of actual, face-to-face interaction. In keeping with its objective approach, the book draws upon the mainstream of modern social psychology to incorporate a refined vision of symbolic interaction theory and the exchange theory of interaction.
It presents a role-identity model of individual social behaviour that reveals what persons gain and what they are likely to spend in their relationships with others. In a research epilogue, the authors discuss empirical methods and procedures for a broader application of the role identity model.
In bringing together a number of major theories and observations that have been previously unassociated, Identities and Interactions does much to clarify contemporary thought about human relationships and behaviour. Social scientists in every area will welcome this stimulating and distinctive addition to the literature.
