Sociology

From Wikipedia, a free encyclopedia written in simple English for easy reading.

Sociology is the study of societies and how humans act in groups. Auguste Comte (1789 - 1857) was first to use the term.

Industrial society was an early focus. Karl Marx, Ferdinand Toennies (Ferdinand Tönnies), Max Weber and Emile Durkheim were leading figures. Themes included: community, authority, status, and the sacred. “Alienation? (isolation and lack of power) was also a subject.

Today sociology looks at such things as: race, ethnicity, class, gender, the family and social interaction. It also studies the breakdown of social structures; crime and divorce.

Sociology can also be defined as the study of the world-wide society. Society is defined as the association and interaction of intelligent persons in informal families and formal bureaucracies where they are motivated to act to achieve survival.
