The world is a scene of risk : it is uncertain, unstable, uncannily unstable…. Each morning we open our eyes to a different universe. George Herbert Mead Pragmatism represents a perfectly familiar attitude in philosophy, the empiricist attitude, but it represents it.in a more radical and less objectionable form than it has ever yet assumed.Our intelligence is occupied with continued adjustments to these differences. A pragmatist turns his (sic) back resolutely and once and for all upon a lot of inveterate habits dear to professional philosophers.

The pragmatic, humanistic theory of symbolic interactionism has been, quietly, one of the most endurable social theories of the twentieth century.
At times in ascendance, at times declared dead, always changing and adjusting to the world around it, its fortunes have been varied.
Whilst some commentators have referred to the recent “graying of symbolic interactionism” (Saxton, 1989), others speak of the “vitalization of symbolic interactionism” (Stryker, 1987); still others talk of the “sad demise, mysterious disappearance, and glorious triumph of symbolic interactionism” (Fine, 1993); and for yet others it is the harbinger of postmodern social theory.
