Homans, of course, confines his theoretical propositions to the reinforcement or suppression of social behaviour based upon the rewards and punishment received by social actors. This behaviourist theory is controversial in itself, and it most certainly runs counter to the tenets of structuration theory. But for present purposes it is sufficient to note that Homans, in effect, sidesteps the problem of 'historicity' at the start of his work by bracketing the content of behavioral norms, and ipso facto the historical diversity of conduct (Homans, 1974, p.
This standpoint, it should be added, 36 Structuration Theory in very general respects draws Winch toward the position of continental philosophers of hermeneutics such as Hans-Georg Gadamer. That empirical inquiry in the social sciences must rely upon interpretative accounts justified by criteria participants use to recognise their own activities is accepted as a methodological necessity in structuration theory (see Cohen, 1984; CS, pp. 339ff). But social scientists cannot rest content with issues regarding the elucidation of recurrent forms of conduct.
To elaborate this point it is useful to return to the notion of mutual knowledge, which, as has been indicated in the previous discussion, subsumes the semantic and normative aspects of rules regarding the appropriate performance of social practices. Consider now the characteristics of mutual knowledge pertaining to institutionalised practices reproduced on numerous occasions by numerous agents in daily life. It should be evident that this knowledge cannot be thoroughly reduced to any specific situation of conduct.
