I think that it means that the book will cover how people use the social representation theory along with other theories in their daily lives. It's either sociology or social psychology, but I'm not sure wich since Those two rhelms of the social sciences sort of intermingle quite a bit. That may not even be what this book is about, but that would be my best guess. Either way, that synopsis isn't really what I would call proper English, or scientific for that matter.

Michel de Certeau considers the uses to which social representation and modes of social behavior are put by individuals and groups.
