The Sociology of the Individual
Relating Self and Society

First Edition
  • Athanasia Chalari - University of Northampton, UK, London School of Economics & Political Science, UK


November 2016 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

What it socialization? What is interaction? What do we mean by identity? How can we explain the notion of self? What do we mean by intra-action?

The Sociology of the Individual is an innovative and though-provoking sociological exploration of how the ideas of the individual and society relate. Expertly combining conceptual depth with clarity of style, Athanasia Chalari:

  • explains the key sociological and psychological theories related to the investigation of the social and the personal
  • analyses the ways that both sociology and psychology can contribute to a more complete understanding and theorising of everyday life
  • uses a mix of international cases and everyday examples to encourage critical reflection.

The Sociology of the Individual is an essential read for upper level undergraduates or postgraduates looking for a deeper and more sophisticated understanding of the connection between the social world and the inner life of the individual. Perfect for modules exploring the sociology of the self, self and society, and self and identity.
