Social knowledge, identities and social practices.

This paper tries to be an analysis of different "forms" of social knowledge and their methodological implications for the study of social representations. In the same way that social cognitive psychologists establish differences between procedural and declarative knowledge, it is assumed that there are forms of social knowledge which do not appear when only using language analyses. There are areas of the social knowledge that are transmitted and "stored" in the ordinary (everyday) structured social practices, and which find a group regulated activity as their most adequate form of expression.
