Introduction by Anthony Giddens

by Małgorzata Bogunia-Borowska (Volume editor)
Edited Collection 138 Pages


The human world is an area of countless places and spaces. This book focuses on the variety of places, on their genuine features, and on their specific form of creating social relations. It discusses spaces inside or outside ourselves and the social relations we are able to find and create there.
«The authors of the book attempt to describe and analyze different spaces and social relations created within them. They look at the social relations and their types, observe the functioning of neighborly relations, relationships on social networks, at home or in museums. Each of these places is different and forms and creates social relations differently. The book offers an interesting study of selected cases over spaces of our everyday lives that help or hinder us build social relationships.» (From the introduction by Anthony Giddens)
