Since high school I've been trained as a scientist (in its broader sense). I learned laws, truth, and unchangable objective observation. I was told that that's how we're supposed to look at the world, and that we're supposed to discover. Physics, math, biology, for all those there's are certain rules applied, and to follow.
Until now, all those have changed up-side-down. Everything is dynamic and somewhat involved with unpredictable humanity. For a social scientist (a rather radical one), an apple's falling is not because of the gravity, is because "that what apples do." This wolrd is highly subjective, and we create in mind what we think we observe.
So all dilusion? We're changing the society! Put out your idea, comes the realization of the public, the ideology thus been formed. There's no rules to follow anymore, because you are the one who creates them. Is reality given or a product of mind? Do you have to experience it to understand it? Do human have free will or are determined by the environment?
That's a lot to swallow, isn't it?
I don't feel uncomfertable with this whole new approach of seeing/studying things and am actually quite excited to learn about different views from a sociology perspective. Just where do I stand after sorting out that some complexity can never be sorted out? Give me some time to think about it, then I'll tell you which side I'm on (although I can already see that I'll be standing somewhere in between).
We're all observers. Stand for what you believe in.
