Fashioning our self

Fashioning our self

The sociologist Anthony Giddens points out that in the routines of our daily lives we make all kinds of small decisions. But he also points out that each little decision (what to eat, what to wear, how to function at work, who to meet with later in the day) contributes to the creation of our self. In the modern context (in post-traditional societies), almost everything we do is about self-identity – about the making and re-making of ourselves.
