What is an example of social realities?
A social reality is a reality that exists as a result of people's 'social' behaviour and that is part of a social groups' established conventions. So: a football match, a cocktail party, a bar mitzvah to name just a few. Social realities therefore can only exist when and as long as a society wants them to exist. 'Marriage' was not a social reality in ancient Egypt, because the whole concept was unknown. In our society, marriage only became a social reality when the Catholic Church declared it a sacrament in the early Middle Ages and people decided that living together should be preceded by a marriage ceremony.

Asked in Scientists
Is it possible to interpret social reality objectively?
No... it is not possible to interpret social reality objectively, but subjectively. Because unlike scientist who can carry experiments inside laboratories on a particular object, a social scientist is unable to conduct experiments inside four walls. Also the conclusions of social scientists are based on their own understandings and interpretation of reality subjectively. Hope this answers your question.

What is the Social theory that contends that reality is constructed each society determined how social action is understood?
It is not a social theory but an approach to psychology that contends reality is construction, each society determined how social action is understood. Social constructionism does not come from an explanatory theory but from an epistemological position. This approach to psychology focuses on power and meaning.

Can social reality be interpreted objectively Discuss.?
No, social reality can not be interpreted objectively because what is one person's social reality may not be another person's social reality. So how can one person interpret the other person's needs objectively if they can't "walk a mile in their shoes"? They honestly can't. Until you have honestly been where another person has been you can't possibly understand and even then you haven't lived their exact life so you won't have their exact perspective on their circumstance, so will you truly understand things as they are understanding them, I doubt it.
