Woodgate, Graham and Michael Redclift. “From a ‘Sociology of Nature’ to Environmental Sociology: Beyond Social Construction.” Environmental Values 7, no. 1 (1998): 3–24. doi:10.3197/096327198129341447.

This paper aims to provide some theoretical starting points for constructing a social science approach to environmental issues which goes beyond narrower forms of constructivism without dismissing the importance of interpretative sociology. An ecological understanding of society is compared with the notion of structuration and integrated into the concept of coevolution in order to shed light on the dynamic nature of socioenvironmental relations and move beyond the constructivist/realist dualism.
