Introduction: The relation between Social Representation Theory and Positioning Theory
This special issue of Papers on Social Representation is devoted to Positioning Theory (PT). For some readers, this might look odd: what does PT have to do with social representation theory (SRT)? This introduction will answer that question by first introducing PT, secondly by explaining how both theories relate to each other as they each focus upon one dimension of social situation: respectively the moral order in play and knowledge available. Most of the papers gathered here have been presented at the second PT conference that was held on 9‐12th July, 2017, at Linacre College, Oxford University, UK.
