Description
Lecture 2 Sociology Sept. 12 Important terms: Sociology Sociological perceptive Common sense Critical thinking Sociological imaginations c. wright mills Structure agency  3elements of sociology: A systematic study of social life A variety of concepts, theories and research methods The body of knowledge resulting from this study  sociology provides a useful way to understand our current predicament and how to see  possible ways of dealing with it. Ex why men don’t wear skirts Sociological perspective: See general social patterns in behaviors of particular individuals  Ex homeless person. We think, get a job, they made their own choices or that we just  think its their individual fault. Sociology thinks theres more than that to it and would look  at patterns, like who is more at risk of being homeless ex: a majority of them are in the  lgbt (lesbian gay by tranny) community. Theres something more than individual  choice……. Is it the fact that lgbt people are often discriminated against still? Theywould  look at families and how they support their gay youth and all of this is part of the answer  to why there is this pattern.  Things that make you go hmmmm? See strange in the familiar Farming, teaching, parenting­> crucial to our society Kardashians? What do they do for society.   The way we organize our society makes sense in many ways until we try and start to  break it down. The fact that the Kardashians make so much per show but then teachers  make 60000 per year who are teaching our youth. Does this mean we vaule­ violence, sports, celebrity’s, gossip?  Its strange how we prioritize what we give our money to and what it is that we are paying  people a great deal of money to do.
