From the Publisher“This long awaited and eagerly anticipated book by two of social psychology’s most illustrious and adventurous innovators erases the divisions between the social sciences and the arts that have blocked the development of a truly unified arts-based human science. Introducing a dizzying array of diverse aesthetic forms that widen the space available for social research aimed at social justice and the good life, the Gergens don’t just talk about what the human sciences can become, they show it. Charming, playful, and fresh, Performing Social Science reveals the promise of an embodied, emotional, and ethical social science that situates the performance arts at the center of inquiry aimed at understanding the fullness of what it means to be human."
