95.00

Sheila McNamee addresses the relativistic perspective of social constructionism, clarifying that it is not rampant relativism where "anything goes." Critics of social constructionism believe it is immoral, unethical and allows irresponsible sorts of behaviors or positions within the theory at large. We need to refigure morality and responsibility. We are attentive to our processes of relating and recognize that we are a part of whatever happens but that we can't do this without the other. We create our identities in our relationships, even create our relationships in relation to others. We start with the premise that all meaning arises in relation to others. Sheila redefines conflict through relational lenses. Additionally she elaborates four different discourses from the Relational Responsibility book which she co-authored with Gergen.
