This book explores the growing conviction that dominant "discursive" trends in social constructionism - which deal with the analysis of language and discourse to the exclusion of the material world, embodiment,personal-social history, and power - are inadequate or incomplete and risk preventing social constructionism from maturing into a viable and coherent body of theory, method and practice, in highlighting what are seen as deficiencies in current constructionist approaches, the book takes a somewhat critical stance. However, the contributing authors are committed to a constructionist analysis of the human condition - into which they seek to reintegrate the material and embodied aspects of our nature. this text draws together for the first time a wide range of emerging issues, ideas and discussions in constructionist psychology. It shows how these issues are relevant to everyday life, using carefully-chosen examples to illustrate its arguments, and provides a coherent and challenging introduction to the field. As a result, the completion of social constructionism is brought a step closer its continued importance is underlined.
