2 the social construction of realityWhile I don’t read a lot of scholarly books, I couldn’t help but get sucked into a book about social constructs. Sociology is something I’ve always found interesting, and this book basically presents the idea of reality being entirely a social construct. It’s a fascinating idea, and the book lays out exactly the reasons why this theory is supported. Since I had never thought of reality that way before, I found it fascinating.

The book is called The Social Construction of Reality, and it’s definitely a dense read. It’s completely filled with information that really makes you think. For example, words are definitely a societal thing. As a child, you learn words from other people and associate them with different things. Therefore, words are socially constructed. And this is just one of the many points the author makes in this book.

I think this book is definitely worth a read. It’s something that opens up your mind to new thoughts and ideas as a whole. While not a lot of people may be thinking about how reality exists, it’s certainly something that’s interesting to think about while reading this book. I think it’s a very scholarly book that’s worth looking into.
