A Philosophy of the Social Construction of Crime

Policy Press

The phenomenology of the social construction of crime is a meaning generating process that rejects any a priori privileging of lived-experience and social world. As a unified phenomenon that is both fluid and indeterminate, its meaning is never finished or complete and is not reducible to taken for granted assumptions about the “subject” or social world. The configuration of the phenomenology of the social construction of crime is therefore a provisional conceptualization of this concept that both includes specific manifestations of individual and social worlds, while always retaining the potentially of that which is not currently present.
