The author of Behavior.
As an Actor, I see the real world as the field o action, as the domain within which I live my life. In it are givens and possibilities; opportunities and non-opportunities; hindrances and facilitations for behavior. In it are reasons for acting one way rather than another. I am sensitized to behaviors that are available and ways of being that are available.

To a large extent, my possibilities are bound up in the objects, processes, events, and states of affairs in the world and in the human communities with their social practices and cultures, including, most importantly, my own community. However, the most important ingredient is me.
