From WebRef.org
Jump to navigationJump to search

Overcoming false consciousness. The process by which an individual or group comes to be aware of and understand (via political and critical structural sociological analyses) that other people share with them common cultural experiences, that others too are restricted and damaged by certain cultural practices, patterns of relations, beliefs, stereotypes, myths, expectations, and social structures. It is the process by which people begin to understand the relationships between their own biographies, other people's biographies, history, and the social infrastructure. See sociological imagination.
