Draws on a theory of habitual sensitivity to social surroundings to construct a phenomenological theory of the social structure of immediate experience. Ostrow (sociology, Bentley College) concludes that the world is inherently social because individuals are immersed in social sensitivity at a young age. Paper edition (unseen), $10.95. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OREach chapter expands on Ostrowas claim that the world is inherently social, by virtue of the sensitivity that immerses us within it before it ever becomes an object of reflection.
