Summary
"This book is a social psychology in the Galilean tradition. Our contention is that the conditions under which human behavior occurs are primarily meanings, for the most part common meanings. In this sense we may think of this book as a logic of symbolic interaction. Some twenty years ago signs of a new trend began to appear, and it is our belief that this book is a product of that trend. The new trend showed increasing emphasis on social interaction, on analysis of dynamic processes, as against the more static attributes or entities. The new trend seemed to portend a movement toward synthesis and the emergence of an integrated system for social psychology, a system competent to describe and analyze in the same vocabularies the phenomena of both individual and group in terms of intrapersonal and interpersonal behavior. This book is presented as a beginning in that direction; it is an attempt to synthesize in a systematic heuristic form some of the more advanced contemporary thinking about human behavior in the fields of social psychology, psychology, sociology, anthropology, psychiatry, and semantics. The book purports to be an integrated conceptual formulation for social psychology in a form which synthesizes the situational or field approach with the symbolic interactionist approach. The viewpoint is therefore field-centric rather than organocentric or envirocentric. It is a descriptive analysis of how man perceives, makes judgments and choices, thinks, and otherwise behaves and comes to behave, as a social being; it is a study of 'the person in the body'."
