Example text

The social reality that comes to be shared is similar, particularly in language, but there are significant differences. There are marked differences between the socialisation of children of different classes, different religions, and different ethnic groups. Even within a society children of different classes in many senses inhabit different worlds. As it is with different societies, here too what is ordinary for a child of one class will be extraordinary for another. But, the effect of primary socialisation is to give the child an identity and a location with a name, an address (usually) and a network of people as relatives and friends.

I cannot use the rules of German syntax when I speak English; I cannot use words invented by my three-year-old son if I want to communicate outside the family; I must take into account prevailing standards of proper speech for various occasions, even if I would prefer my private ‘improper’ ones. Language provides me with a ready-made possibility for the ongoing objectification of my unfolding experience’ [Berger and Luckmann, 1967, p 53]. This objectification – the objective existence of the externalised roles – is in turn internalised by almost all who join the institution.

One cannot see through Islamic eyes without being a Muslim. At the same time, if one is a Muslim, one cannot comprehend the perspective of the nonbeliever. This was well demonstrated in the fierce debate over the publication of Salman Rushdie’s Satanic Verses (1988). We can then observe others’ reality but until it is internalised it cannot be real for us, but while it is not real for us we lack a vital aspect of comprehension. With these caveats, we now turn to a portrayal of a way of understanding the world which is dramatically different from ours.
