Social Constructionism. Vivien Burr. This accessible, yet scholarly, textbook aims to introduce students to the area of social science theory and research that has come to be known as social constructionism. Using a variety of examples from everyday experience and from existing research in areas such as personality, sexuality and health, the basic theoretical assumptions of social constructionism are clearly explained. Key debates, such as the nature and status of knowledge, truth, reality and the self are given in-depth analysis in an accessible style.

The theoretical and practical issues relevant to social constructionist research are illustrated with examples from real empirical studies, and the different approaches to social constructionist research are clearly defined.

While the text is broadly sympathetic to social constructionism, the weaknesses of the approach are also addressed through a critical approach to the material, and in the final chapter the theory is subjected to a more extensive critique. Social Constructionism, Second Edition, extends and updates the material covered in the first edition and will be a useful and informative resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students of psychology, as well as students from related areas such as health, social work and education.

Since the publication of An Introduction to Social Constructionism in I have been delighted by and grateful for the many messages of appreciation I have received from readers. In preparing this book I have tried to remain faithful to the intentions of the original while aiming to reflect the growing complexity and richness of social constructionism. As in the earlier publication, I have generally adopted the position of the advocate, so that my overall strategy has been to persuade the reader of the advantages of a social constructionist approach. However, this is not an uncritical advocacy and I have also discussed the weaknesses and inadequacies of social constructionism and indicated the areas where I believe it needs to be developed. I hope that, whether social constructionist territory is already familiar to you or you are a new and curious explorer, you will enjoy this book. An unknown error has occurred.
