Slide 5:
-we need social lives; if not we will go insane (lose mind) because no one reflecting
back to them.
-we need to be with each other.
-we are self aware... eg. Dolphins too. (looking in a mirror, we know we are looking at
ourselves)
-ʻSocial Systemʼ: we are in very structured relations; contained.. they are changing over
time
-Talcott believes this relation creates a web
-Talcott Parsonʼs thought society was/and should be highly structured (idea of
ʻstreamingʼ in the 50ʼs)
*streaming- identifying peopleʼs jobs for them (youʼre a brick layer, youʼre a business
man)
Slide 6:
-micro relationships: family, friends, strangers.. If you were to never see them again you
would think, oh where are they? Facebook buddies (micro relationship with someone
youʼll never meet in Japan) (small scale, face to face, day to day) ..seeing the same
faces on campus. *control over
-macro relationships: embedded in bigger relationships, very little control, stuck in them
(canʼt escape them), and effect our micro relationships (big scale) *no control over
Slide 8:
Case Study: R.M.S. Titanic
>ship owner demands designer to decrease lifeboats from 48 to 16 because “people
donʼt pay to look at lifeboats”. (micro: boss > macro: economics, class, technology)
>new and stronger steel rivets used, so then they use cheaper ones. The repair of the
Olympia delays the departure of the Titanic and then the crew changes (titanic was two
weeks late.. if it had left on time, would probably not have hit “timing delays boat”) The
captain steers the boat south of where known icecaps are. *macro: technological,
weather, history, economics.. etc.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
