What is the Sociological imagination? C Wright Mills defined this as the ability to see the relationship between individual experience and the larger society.
How does sociology help us better understand our social world and ourselves? It helps us see the complex connections between our own lives and the larger world, recurring patterns of the society and world in which we live.
Is there a difference between the sociologist and an anthropologists? Anthropology seeks to understand human existence over geographic space and evolutionary time. Sociology seeks to understand contemporary social organization, relations and change.
What is culture? The knowledge, language, values, customs and material objects that are passed from person to person and from one generation to the next in a human group or society.
What is the difference between counterculture and subculture? Counterculture strongly rejects the dominant societal values and norms, where subculture is a group of people who share a distinctive set of cultural beliefs and behaviors that differ in some way significantly from that of the larger culture.
What purpose does socialization serve? The lifelong process of social interaction through which individuals acquire a self identity and the physical, mental, and social skills needed for survival in society.
How does socialization occur? Agents of socialization are the groups, institutions and people that teach us what we need to know in order to participate in society.
