double hermeneutic

At the same time, the double hermeneutic implies the task of describing the social world by Sociology in its own technical concepts. Thus, “the concepts, theories and findings generated by Sociology ‘spiral in and out’ of social life” (Giddens, 1987: 32). Or yet, “sociological observers depend upon lay concepts to generate accurate descriptions of social processes; and agents regularly appropriate theories and concepts of social science within their behavior, thus potentially changing its character” (Giddens, 1987: 30).

Hence, the author points out that social actors, while appropriating knowledge produced by Sociology, attribute new meaning to it, and at the same time challenge Sociology to reach for new advances.
