Editorial Reviews

"This is an original work, one that stimulates further reflection on the social as a crucial concept in both sociology and philosophy. Pyyhtinen has certainly brought the social alive for a contemporary audience." -- David Frisby, Professor of Sociology, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK
