Symbolism 1-2


David Schneider

Interpretation means reading between the lines. culture is not out there but in people's mind and reality is experienced internally constructed in social run through interaction and interpreted by the actors. Native point of view is necessary to understand. Thick description. Aim of interpretive studies to draw large conclusions from small but very densely textured facts to support broad assertions about the role of culture in the construction of collective life.
