Peter Berger likens sociological discovery to culture shock minus geographical displacement. He also points out that as a sociologist we must peel away the layers of the world-taken-for-granted. What does Berger mean by these statements? Explain in detail the relevance of these statements to sociological inquiry. In addition, explain how if you decided to subject an aspect of social reality to sociological inquiry (eg. Night clubs), how it may appear differently from previous conceptions of it. That is to say, take an example from your everyday life that was not discussed in class and explore it sociologically, highlighting features that were previously taken for granted but now appearmore complex and rich with multiple layers of meaning
