New Book Review: Thomas Roulet on Mark de Rond’s Doctors at War #sssi #sociology #orgstudies

We have just published Thomas Roulet’s review of Mark de Rond’s ethnography “Doctors at War”. Roulet writes “Mark de Rond brilliantly presents the human side of those doctors, making them incredibly relatable. So relatable, that we might for one second forget about the barbarity they witness and how emotionally strong they must be, to imagine ourselves wanting to embrace the same challenges and purpose.”

Just out: Randall Collins’ review of Norbert Wiley’s book “Inner Speech and the Dialogic Self” #sssi #sociology

In his review of “Inner Speech and the Dialogical Self” Randall Collins (University of Pennsylvania) writes that Nobert Wiley “rejects the Durkheim/Goffman line of argument that the self is a socially created symbol and a social performance, and hence, there is no self apart from societyFor Wiley, the self is deeply private, and no societalization can take this away however much it adds to it.” Whilst many sociologists argue that inner speech cannot be reliably studied, Collins’ review suggests that Wiley’s book offers plenty of reasons for sociologists to turn to inner speech because “the more we know about inner speech, the more we know how to ask fruitful questions.”
