This seminar sets out the arguments firstly for conceptualising of morality as an ordinary facet of social living, and secondly for why an interactionist relational sociology provides the best means to understand how morality is engaged with in practice. I will highlight a few of the empirical studies and theoretical critiques (of dominant philosophic and sociological positions on morality) through which these arguments are made, before showing the virtues of G. H. Mead's work for understanding how morality is engaged with in practice.
