The physique and reports of embodiment have generated a wealthy and various sociological literature. This quantity articulates and illustrates one significant method of the sociology of the physique: symbolic interactionism, an more and more regular theoretical base of up to date sociology derived from the pragmatism of writers similar to John Dewey, William James, Charles Peirce, Charles Cooley and George Herbert Mead. The authors argue that, from an interactionist standpoint, the physique is way greater than a tangible, corporeal item - it's a vessel of significant importance to the person and society. From this attitude, physique, self and social interplay are in detail interrelated and continuously reconfigured. the gathering constitutes a distinct anthology of empirical study at the physique, from well-being and sickness to sexuality, from good looks and imagery to physically functionality in recreation and paintings, and from mediated verbal exchange to cosmetic surgery. The contributions are trained via cutting edge interactionist conception, delivering clean insights into one of many quickest becoming sub-disciplines of sociology and cultural studies.
