Social Construction of Reality
How does HE believe that the social construction of reality relates to culture, social institutions, and social psychology?
Yes… this is for one of my college finals :)
The map is not the territory.
Oh, and it’s nice to see someone else from Philly on here. Hello!
Reality is elected democratically.
@dalniente, ill check that out! and where at in Philly?
@manweiser13, I actually live in Jersey, but I take the Patco (to 8th & Market) most days.
Hope your finals go well!
@dalniente, You ever go to New Hope?
@frostyrocks, How exactly is reality elected democratically?
@manweiser13, In every way possible, each one of those aspects are relative to socially constructed reality. But since it’s for college i’ll expand, a bit.
@facets, I was planning on visiting Princeton over winter break. It’s not terribly far from there.
@manweiser13, it’s nice to know I’m not alone!

@facets, Reality is elected democratically because even though reality is, and will always be, somewhat subjective, it leaves the entire thing subjective (the objectivity influences reality, but does not determine it, so we still live in very different worlds than each each other). What people assume, they make real by way of self-fulfilling prophecies. If we act as if colors are real, they are. If we act as if souls exist, then they do (for all intents and purposes). I say democratically because even though we can choose any norm, for example, we choose specific norms, and that’s the way it goes. Reality can exist in many ways (souls existing vs not existing, for example) and so it is the public that creates it.
