Denzin offers a uniquely phenomenological approach to explain the development of an alcoholic′s sense of self that is fragmented, defensive and subjective. He discusses behavioural and psychoanalytic theories of the problem and considers the views of alcoholics themselves. He places the disease within a broader social context, arguing that the alcoholic′s internal conflicts reflect the dichotomies and contradictions in society.
