'We must put ourselves in the position of the subject who tries to find his way in this world, and we must remember, first of all, that the environment by which he is influenced and to which he adapts himself is his world, not the objective world of science.'

Robert Prus is a professor of sociology at the University of Waterloo. A symbolic interactionist and pragmatist ethnographer, he intends to connect social theory with the study of human action in a very direct, experientially-engaged (community life-world) sense. He has written several books on the ways that people make sense of and engage the life-worlds in which they find themselves. These include Road Hustler with C.R.D. Sharper; Hookers, Rounders, and Desk Clerks with Styllianoss Irini; Making Sales; Pursuing Customers; Symbolic Interaction and Ethnographic Research; Subcultural Mosaics and Intersubjective Realities; Beyond the Power Mystique; and The Deviant Mystique with Scott Grills. At present, Robert Prus is tracing the developmental flows of pragmatist thought from the classical Greek era (c700-300BCE) to the present time. This involves a number of areas of western social thought - including rhetoric, poetics, religious studies, ethnohistory, education, politics, and philosophy.
