Summary and Info
"Ethnographies of Reason" is a unique book in terms of the studies it presents, the perspective it develops, and the practical research techniques it illustrates. Using concrete case-study materials throughout, the book offers a fundamentally different, ethnographic approach to the study of skill and reasoning. At the same time, it addresses a much neglected topic in the literature by illustrating practical techniques of ethnomethodological research and showing how such studies are actually conducted. The book is a major contribution to ethnomethodology, to social science methodology, and to the study of skill and reasoning generally.
