At the heart of this study is a theory of habitual sensitivity that originates in the writings of Maurice Merleau-Ponty and John Dewey. The author develops this theory as an alternative to Schutz s theory of taken-for-granted knowledge, which has had a pervasive influence on how phenomenology has been understood and applied within sociology.

Each chapter expands on Ostrow s claim that the world is inherently social, by virtue of the sensitivity that immerses us within it before it ever becomes an object of reflection.
