Not So 'Common' Sense : Same Words, Different Grammar

Files

Description

The present study attempts to investigate what is referred to as “common sense.” More precisely, it attempts to demonstrate that not only what people tend to see as the natural order of things changes with time and space but also, and more importantly, that what we come to believe as common sense is the result of a very complex ideological enterprise. This study argues that while common sense differs from one social formation to another, its workings remain the same. -- publisher site
