The Social Construction of Reality: A Treatise in the Sociology of Knowledge

The classic work that redefined the sociology of knowledge and has inspired a generation of philosophers and thinkers
 
In this seminal book, Peter L. Berger and Thomas Luckmann examine how knowledge forms and how it is preserved and altered within a society. Unlike earlier theorists and philosophers, Berger and Luckmann go beyond intellectual history and focus on commonsense, everyday knowledge—the proverbs, morals, values, and beliefs shared among ordinary people.
 
When first published in 1966, this systematic, theoretical treatise introduced the term social construction,effectively creating a new thought and transforming Western philosophy.

'“Berger and Luckmann do in relatively short compass what has long been necessary—they place the sociology of knowledge foursquare in the center of the sociological stage . . . The authors open up vistas which provide a major breakthrough in the sociology of knowledge and sociological theory generally.” —George Simpson, American Sociological Review'
