In his important new book, Thomas Scheff offers an innovative approach to researching human behavior that relates the smallest parts of social interaction to the greatest wholes of social structure. These are the details and connections usually found only in the finest novels, but Scheff combines the insights of the humanities and social sciences to capture the same evocative details of sight, sound and context, better to understand what he calls "human reality". He puts a fresh emphasis on the importance of emotions in the social bond, and describes in newly subtle ways the outer and inner lives of persons in real life, such as inner city children, and in fiction, such as Jane Austen's heroines. By closely observing the significance of words and gestures, in the context in which they occur, he is able to illuminate the connection between people's lives and the society in which they live.

Book Description:

Thomas Scheff offers an innovative approach to human behaviour which relates the smallest parts of social interaction to the greatest wholes of social structure. Combining insights from the humanities and social sciences, he evokes the detail of 'human reality', with an emphasis on the emotions. The outer and inner lives of real and fictional persons are analyzed through close observation of words and gestures in the context in which they occur, and the connection between people's lives and the society in which they live is illuminated.

Review:

"The attempt to reach beyond standard methodologies to include material drawn from other sources is to be welcomed." Choice

"[Emotions, the Social Bond, and Human Reality: Part/Whole Analysis] is an ambitious and comprehensive enterprise....the book has fems of insight and connection well worth discovering." Joy Charlton, American Journal of Sociology
