Experience, Caste and the Everyday Social


Experience, Caste, and the Everyday Social offers a sustained argument that the social is experienced in various ways, through the senses as well as through conceptualizations such as self, time, and friendship. By looking at the experiences of everyday life in societies like India, it attempts to understand how different socialities are formed and sustained. It offers new insights on themes such as the ontology of the social, the way the social is experienced, the nature of social that operates in the world as invisible authority, along with the creation of notions such as social self and social time. Endorsing the concept of ‘Maitri’, signifying ethical relationship among multiple social entities, the book offers a distinct theory of the social supported by ample empirical observations.
