The problem with people book
Turning now to the issue of agency, the social actor and the person, once again part of my aim will be to try to show that Giddens loses important dimensions in these areas, and that these lost dimensions point not only to the existence of external social structures but also to the existence of internal psychological structures of much more complexity and ambiguity and to more complex relationships between the two than is allowed for in structuration theory. Of all his work, it is, for me, his view of the personality which leaves most to be desired and adds least to the armoury of sociology.
