About the Authors
  • Over the past few decades new ways of conceiving the relation between people, practices and institutions have been developed, enabling an understanding of human conduct in complex situations that is distinctive from traditional psychological and sociological conceptions. This distinctiveness is derived from a sophisticated analytic approach to social action which combines conversation analysis with the fresh treatment of epistemology, mind, cognition and personality developed in discursive psychology. This text is the first to showcase and promote this new method of discursive research in practice. Featuring contributions from a range of international academics, both pioneers in the field and exciting new researchers, this book illustrates an approach to social science issues that cuts across the traditional disciplinary divisions to provide a rich participant-based understanding of action.

    • An introductory chapter provides a unique overview of the diverse theoretical and analytical strands in discursive research
    • Features a specially commissioned range of international contributors
    • Data derives from a range of sources from family conversations and telephone calls to medical sessions, psychological experiments and relationship counselling to sex offender therapy
