The year 2016 marks an important anniversary for sociology as 50 years have passed since Peter L. Berger and Thomas Luckmann published their work:
“The Social Construction of Reality”.
This book influenced not only the sociology of knowledge but sociological theory formation in general. Furthermore, it had an impact on the discourse in other disciplines:
Social constructivism has become the label of a widespread way of thinking in the very diverse settings within the social sciences, the humanities as well as in manifold trans-disciplinary studies.
On the occasion of this anniversary, the International Symposium
Social Constructivism as Paradigm?
50 Years of Social Construction of Reality
took place on 28 -30 April 2016
