Drawing on postmodern philosophies and critical, social, and literary theories, social construction has become an important and influential framework for practice and research within social work and related fields.

As identity and authenticity discourses increasingly saturate everyday life, so too have these concepts spread across the humanities and social sciences literatures. Many scholars may be interested in identity and authenticity but lack knowledge of paradigmatic or disciplinary approaches to these concepts.

This volume offers readers insight into social constructionist approaches to identity. Book Description Social Construction of the Past examines how mainstream scholarship constructs the past and, in creating a people's cultural history, appropriates it and turns it into a form of domination by one group over another.

Social Constructionism Social constructionism is a theory of knowledge that holds that characteristics typically thought to be immutable and solely biological—such as gender, race, class, ability, and sexuality—are products of human definition and interpretation shaped by cultural and historical contexts (Subramaniam ).

The Social Construction of Reality: A Treatise in the Sociology of Knowledge is a book about the sociology of knowledge by the sociologists Peter L. Berger and Thomas Luckmann. Berger and Luckmann introduced the term social construction into the social sciences and were strongly influenced by the work of Alfred Schütz.

Their central concept is that people and groups interacting in a social. In sociologists Peter Berger and Thomas Luckmann wrote a book called The Social Construction of Reality. In it, they argued that society is created by. Social Construction is a specter haunting research.

Or at least it is one of the focal points of the Science Wars, between figures arguing the objectivity and integrity of science (usually particle physicists) and those arguing the opposite (usually sociologists or historians or anthropologists or some such)/5.

Social constructionism is a general term sometimes applied to theories that emphasize the socially created nature of social life. Of course, in one sense all sociologists would argue this, so the term can easily become devoid of meaning.

Lost in the raging debate over the validity of social construction is the question of what, precisely, is being constructed.

Facts, gender, quarks, reality. Ian Hacking's book explores an array of examples to reveal the deep issues underlying contentious accounts of reality. Especially troublesome in this dispute is the status of the natural sciences, and this is where Hacking finds some of.

The theory of social constructionism was introduced in the book The Social Construction of Reality, by sociologists Peter L. Berger and Thomas Luckman.

Berger and Luckman’s ideas were inspired by a number of thinkers, including Karl Marx. Contemporary theorists use the term “social construction” with the aim of exposing how what's purportedly “natural” is often at least partly social and, more specifically, how this masking of the social is politically significant.

The chapters in this book draw on insights from feminist and critical race theory to develop the idea that gender and race are positions within a structure.

Social Construction: A Reader will be essential reading for students across the social sciences. It will be an invaluable resource, both used indepently and as complimentary to Kenneth J Gergen's seminal text, An Invitation to Social Construction, also published by SAGE Publications.
