Document Summary

The theoretical framework: reality is socially constructed. This means that there is no such thing as a real or true reality. This means that people in interaction with each other agree about reality. For example, the reality of being in a classroom for a student is different than that for a professor. Try arguing what music is relevant and what good music" is with your parents and/or grandparents! The same argument exists with movies: each person has their own reality and it is shared by no one else. This is because no one else has had exactly the same life experiences as you. Movies: according to film researcher ray surette, we live in two worlds: the real world and the real world mediated by the media. According to wi thomas, one of the social theorists who developed symbolic interactionism (the theoretical basis of the social construction of reality): that which is believed to be real, is real in its impact.
