Example text

Before we can answer this question we need to look more closely at the nature of language. LANGUAGE As we saw, for most contemporary theories, and in this hermeneutics is no exception, understanding and interpretation emerge through a linguistic dimension. But if language cannot be described as subjective (held inside people's heads) or objective (standing apart from the social world) it might This SAGE ebook is copyright and is supplied by Dawsonera.

Plausibility is a matter of social context so science is "a social construct'" and that 'in a sociological or historical investigation, act as though the world does not constrain what scientists believe about it' (Collins, 1994). The view that science is ( just) a social construct is of course vigorously debated; for a critique of these views, see Bunge (1991, 1992). As Richard Dawkins put it: When you take a 747 to an international convention of sociologists or literary critics, the reason you will arrive in one piece is that a lot of western-trained scientists and engineers got their sums right.

So we might get a very different understanding of these processes from a radical ecological group and a government minister. Where certain critics have gone wrong, however, is to argue that such reflections can only be about the prejudices or individual perspectives of particular groups. Through a shared language both the government minister and the eco­ logical group are trying to open out perspectives on the world in which we currently live. That is, while language does not mirror reality, it does of course refer to it.
