3 03 2008

Brought to you by Jeanne Binning:

“When the actor is brought in—not the actor denoted by such vapid terms as intentional subject or culturally constructed self or social person but with desires and fears, hopes and anxieties, loves and hates, conflicts and defenses, the kind of actor we know ourselves and the people we study to be but who nevertheless seldom appears in our culture theories—then complexity unfortunately cannot be avoided” (Spiro 1997:7).
