Abstract:
This paper will examine the role of the social in design practice. In aid of understanding and enacting that role, it will examine the kinds of sociology that could be involved in design practice and education. Topics considered include the fundamentally social and cultural nature of design, and the of design to the sociologies of work, science and technology, organisations, education, and culture.
