By G. H. Mead, edited by Filipe Carreira da Silva
This publication introduces social scientists to the guidelines of George Herbert Mead (1863-1931) - the most unique but overlooked thinkers of early 20th century sociology. Mead is a phenomenal case among sociological classics in that, in the past, there was no accomplished reader of his paintings. because the first one-volume, accomplished edited choice of Mead’s released and unpublished writing, this publication fills this hole. it's the first to seriously verify all of Mead's writings and draw out the points which are imperative to his approach of inspiration. The publication is split into 3 elements (social psychology, technology and epistemology, and democratic politics), comprising a complete of 30 chapters - a 3rd of that are released right here for the 1st time. G.H. Mead: A Reader offers a distinct and well timed contribution to the knowledge of this key theorist. it really is crucial examining for either undergraduate and postgraduate scholars within the fields of sociology, social psychology, philosophy of social technological know-how, social and cultural anthropology, and social and political thought.
