jumping ahead : ch.2, p.1

from the freshest, most current version…

“An element of subjective, socially structured, and culturally mediated construction always exists in human perception. An individualist notion of human agency declares people see the world and their experience in it, independently choose what it means, and then freely act. But this is not a predetermined given, only an idealized possibility. Many see limits on it, from language (REFERENCE) to biology (REFERENCE). Searching for tipping points between unfettered exercise of these human capacities relative to external (cultural, social) and internal (psychological, biophysical) constraints are a perennial quest.”
