A great introduction to the theories of everyday life from a wide range of philosophers, anthropologists, sociologists and other contributors worth exploring. Highmore has edited a collection that is an essential text for anyone interested in the aesthetics, mundanity and materiality of everyday life.

Excellent collection of critical writings on the patterns and daily minutia that slip through the fingers of theory.
