Summary

For the better part of its history sociology shared with commonsense its assumption of the #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;nature-like#xE2;#xAC;" character of society #xE2;#xAC;#x1C; and consequently developed as the science of unfreedom. In this powerful and engaging work, first published in 1976, Professor Bauman outlines the historical roots of such a science and describes how the new trends in sociology emerging from phenomenology and existentialism do not challenge this preoccupation. Rather, he claims, they deepen and extend it by stressing the key role of commonsense, particularly the ways in which it is sustained and embedded in the routines and assumptions of everyday life.
