The Sociologist's Eye

The Sociologist's Eye Reflections on Social Life Kai T. Erikson

A masterful introduction to and appreciation of sociology as a window into our world

The culmination of a distinguished career, this fascinating exploration into the nature of human social life describes the field of sociology as a way of looking at the world rather than as a simple gathering of facts about it. Kai Erikson notes that sociologists look out at the same human scenes as poets, historians, economists, or any other observers of the vast social landscape spread out before them, but select different aspects of that vast panorama to focus on and attend to. Erikson's lively and accessible volume considers how sociology became a field of study, and how it has turned its attention over time to new areas of study such as race and gender and what Erikson calls "social speciation." This book provides readers with new ways of thinking about human culture and social life-an exhilarating sense of what the world looks like when viewed with a sociologist's eye.
