About Richard Sennett. Richard Sennett. Richard Sennett has explored how individuals and groups make social and cultural sense of material facts -- about the cities in which they live and about the labour they do. He focuses on how people can become competent interpreters of their own experience, despite the obstacles society may put in their way.
His research entails ethnography, history, and social theory. As a social analyst, Mr. Sen Richard Sennett has explored how individuals and groups make social and cultural sense of material facts -- about the cities in which they live and about the labour they do. Sennett continues the pragmatist tradition begun by William James and John Dewey. His first book, The Uses of Disorder,  looked at how personal identity takes form in the modern city. He then studied how working-class identities are shaped in modern society, in The Hidden Injuries of Class, written with Jonathan Cobb.
Sennett sought to account the philosophic implications of this work in Authority . He then returned to urban studies with two books, The Conscience of the Eye, , a work focusing on urban design, and Flesh and Stone , a general historical study of how bodily experience has been shaped by the evolution of cities. In the mid s, as the work-world of modern capitalism began to alter quickly and radically, Mr. Sennett began a project charting its personal consequences for workers, a project which has carried him up to the present day.
Most recently, Mr. Sennett has explored more positive aspects of labor in The Craftsman , and in Together: The Rituals, Pleasures and Politics of Cooperation . Books by Richard Sennett. Related Articles. We've got you covered with the buzziest new releases of the day.

The reigning myth today is that the evils of society can all be understood as evils of impersonality, alienation, and coldness. The sum of these three is an ideology of intimacy: social relationships of all kinds are real, believable, and authentic the closer they approach the inner psychological concerns of each person.
This ideology transmutes political categories into psychological categories. This ideology of intimacy defines the humanitarian spirit of a society without gods: warmth is our god.
The history of the rise and fall of public culture at the very least calls this humanitarian spirit into question. The belief in closeness between persons as a moral good is in fact the product of a profound dislocation which capitalism and secular belief produced in the last century.
Because of this dislocation, people sought to find personal meanings in impersonal situations, in objects, and in the objective conditions of society itself. They could not find these meanings; as the world became psychomorphic, it became mystifying. They therefore sought to flee, and find in the private realms of life, especially in the family, some principle of order in the perception of personality.
Thus the past built a hidden desire for stability in the overt desire for closeness between human beings. Even as we have revolted against the stern sexual rigidities of the Victorian family, we continue to burden close relations with others with these hidden desires for security, rest, and permanence.
When the relations cannot bear these burdens, we conclude there is something wrong with the relationship, rather than with the unspoken expectations. Arriving at a feeling of closeness to others is thus often after a process of testing them; the relationship is both close and closed.
If it changes, if it must change, there is a feeling of trust betrayed. Closeness burdened with the expectation of stability makes emotional communication—hard enough as it is—one step more difficult.
Can intimacy on these terms really be a virtue? Welcome back. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Sennett's Marxism.

Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? The author tackles the subject of the public mans crisis, discussing the lack of equilibrium that exists today between public and private life. We are shown how there is a scarcity of the pleasure and helpfulness that comes with interacting with our fellow citizens, how the stranger is a threatening being; how silence and observation are now the only ways of experiencing public life, and how private life becomes distorted when we focus all our attention upon ourselves. A theory as fascinating as it is important; crucial for a better understanding of todays society and our ideas of individual identity. Read more Read less.
