Abstractness | Understanding of a context
People´s understanding of the world lies in practical rather discursive consciousness, for it is contextually bound, not abstract (Giddens, A., in: Tucker, K.H. 1998, p.81).

Trends in people's world view: not abstract, focused on interpretation of others (rather than reflexivity).

Note. Levels of agency (Ibid.):
Discursive consciousness refers to the conscious reasons that people give to explain their behaviours and motivations.
Practical consciousness is the unarticulated beliefes and knowledges that people use to orient themselves to situations and interpret the actions of others.
Unconscious (in terms of Freud).
