Editorial Reviews

Hans Joas
The reception of G.H.Mead's seminal ideas has gone through enormous ups and downs. Little known outside Chicago during his lifetime, he became, from the 1930s on, a classic of sociology through some of his posthumous publications. In connnection with a widespread renaissance of pragmatism in the 1980s, he was recognized as a crucial member of this philosophical school. And while the enthusiasm may have abated a little bit around 2000, this book is an indicator for the continuing vitality of Mead's thinking on the international scene. This collection is a welcome addition to the growing field of Mead studies.
