«La realidad humana primaria son personas en conversación».

Harré, 1983, pág. 58

Rorty, 1980, pág. 380

John Shotter's interdisciplinary analysis highlights the socially contested but imaginary nature of many of the `things' we talk about in social life and illuminates the processes of their construction.
