Principles of Sociology Week One: Chapter One Sociology- The systematic scientific study of human society. o Started with philosophers focusing on human beings and societies, then just on individuals. Society- A group of people who share a culture and a territory. o College majors, towns, work places, etc. Social Marginality- Being excluded from mainstream society due to differences of the majority. o Different treatment for those who are different Minorities, the poor, senior citizens, the disabled o We all make the assumption that everyone is like us. This causes miscommunications. With racial and ethnic groups, we SEE differences, which naturally causes fear because we do not know what to expect from them. This is where prejudice and discrimination comes from. o We have to realize it is not fair to marginalize people based on their differences from ourselves. Globalization- The breaking down of national boarders because of advances in communications, trade, and travel with a resulting spread of products and ideas around the world. o Technology had made the world seem a lot smaller than it actually is. Social Forces- They exist outside the individual in the form of social relationships. o Social relationships are relationships between family, economy, schools, religion, etc. These social forces rule every aspect of out lives. If you do not fulfill a expectation (like getting a job) you will be fired. How you deal with these social forces determines how happy you will be in life. Social Integration- The degree to which people are tied to a social group through shared values and other social bonds o Sports teams, fraternities, etc. Sociological integration- The ability to see the impact of social forces on individuals. o Your ability to do this is what will make you successful.
