This is why the idea of social facts was conceived, to refer to the intangibles that occur as product of social interactions between humans, who creates realities because of the constant cycle of agreement-disagreement, decision-making, and rationalization. The observable, and sometimes unconscious, social occurrences…

Social Research_ Finding Fact from Fiction

Right in the beginning of the book, the question about how exactly we are able to know things easily caught my interest. The introductory part poses the arguments that what we know may have come from certain agreements and beliefs formed from the collective responses of the members of the society from the things they observe.

In Brooks’ book, there are several moments, while recounting the battles with the zombies, where they are told from the point of view of the liberators.
