Much has been missed by social researchers in their attempt to understand the human experience as a series of rational, cognitive choices. Human subjectivity in lived experience, both that of the subject and that of the researcher, is the topic of this volume, an important corrective to the detached stance of most previous social research.

The contributors examine various aspects of the subject - the emotions, the gendered nature of experience, the body-mind relationship, perceptions of time, place and setting, understanding of the self - and explore how these elements provide a fuller understanding of the human condition.
