Abstract:The notion of the subject implied by contextual practice finds its defining discourse in the traditions of social science where ‘society’ is regarded as essentially separate from ‘the individual’. This it is suggested, has led to a neglect of debate on subjectivity in contextual practice. What is offered as central to any contextual practice is a notion of subjectivity as distributed within, rather than separate from social relations.
