Discussion Question: The Sociological Perspective

In this first chapter, we cover many important terms and ideas explaining the basic structure of Sociology. Sociology concerns itself with the structure and change of society, Sociology is a space where the personal becomes the social. Sociology helps us to understand how and why the individual is affected by society. Sociology helps us understand how some groups thrive while others suffer. We will see these ideas fleshed out in the coming weeks as we begin to focus on various sociological theories. For now, please read the following article
