Sociology

I am having difficulty understanding the four principles of social stratification.
1. Social stratification is a trait of society, not simply
a reflection of individual differences.
2. Social stratification carries over from generation to
generation.
3. Social stratification is universal but
variable.
4. Social stratification involves not just inequality but beliefs as well.

  1. 1. Social stratification is a trait of society, not simply
    a reflection of individual differences.

    Your society (the people in your country, state, town, neighborhood) determine your status. Your individual abilities and talents usually have little to do with your status.

    2. Social stratification carries over from generation to
    generation.

    People generally have the same social status as their parents, grandparents, etc.

    3. Social stratification is universal but
    variable.

    Every society has social classes -- but they are not the same everywhere.

    4. Social stratification involves not just inequality but beliefs as well.
    People may be treated equally under the law, but individuals may not do so.
