how can sociology help you understand your place in contemporary American society?
anyone can answer / i need opinions
Let's start with a definition of sociology from Dictionary.com.
"–noun the science or study of the origin, development, organization, and functioning of human society; the science of the fundamental laws of social relations, institutions, etc."
Sociology helps you understand different groups in our society. It brings these groups together to make a whole picture.
In which group are you?
How can you fit in and empathize with other groups?
What do you have in common with other groups?
I am not a fan of sociology, but one area they have studied and made significant useful progress is in Marriage and Family, even with the modern definitions and variants of what "marriage" and "family" are.
Read this article, and think about what sociologists might study on this. It fits with new definitions of marriage and family. Like it or not, we have to understand how to function as a society with this statistic.
thank you guys
