Smith, Dorothy. “The Conceptual Practices of Power.” In Social Theory Re-Wired, edited by Wesley Longhofer and Daniel Winchester, 388-394. New York: Routledge Taylor and Francis Group, 2012. (7)

Dorothy Smith’s piece, “The Conceptual Practices of Power,” recognizes and examines the implications and intricacies of feminist sociology and the study of humanity through a feminist lens. In her piece, Smith acknowledges, “the actualities of [the] everyday world [as] already socially organized…settings, equipment, environment, schedules, occasions, and so forth, as well as [the] enterprises and routines”69. This way of viewing a culture or society is critical in any ream of Social Scientific study, including, as Smith focuses on Sociology. Pieces like Smith’s are critical to the academic world, but also valuable in interacting with various aspects of society, either of ones own or of another’s. If one takes into account the aspect of reality which Smith highlights, one can create a more open and non-influential dialogue between cultures, people and societies.
