About this product
- DescriptionThe tion of sociality is w widely used within the social sciences and humanities. However, what is meant by the term varies radically, and the contributors here, through compelling and wide ranging essays, identify the strengths and weaknesses of current definitions and their deployment in the social sciences. By developing their own rigorous and invative theory of human sociality, they re-set the framework of the debate and open up new possibilities for conceptualising other forms of sociality, such as that of animals or materials. Cases from Asia, Africa, the Americas and Europe explore the new directions of human sociality, illuminating how and why it is transformed when human beings engage with such major issues as ecomic downturn, climate change, new regimes of occupational and psychological therapy, techlogical invations in robotics and the creation of new online, virtual environments. This book is an invaluable resource, t only for research and teaching, but for anyone interested in the question of what makes us social.
