Sociology (71 Books)


Sociology is the scientific study of society. It is a social science which uses various methods of empirical investigation and critical analysis to develop a body of knowledge about human social activity. For many sociologists the goal is to conduct research which may be applied directly to social policy and welfare, while others focus primarily on refining the theoretical understanding of social processes. Subject matter ranges from the micro level of individual agency and interaction to the macro level of systems and the social structure.

What is Different about Pristine English?

By: Ved from Victoria Institutions

This is a post that I had done on Telegraph.UK blog pages. The first chapter was posted on the 27th of May 2014. It was part of my desperate attempts to inform the naive, gullible and stupid Englanders of what is dangerously different in most other languages, which have feudal or three-Dimensional word-code structure. Without any information on this most powerful evilness, the nation is singing praise and glory to its misinformed national policy of multiculture. ...

Un monde de prairiens : Les hommes vus par les insectes

By: Dr. Maneglia Yves

Analogies entre histoires de prairiens et histoires d'hommes

Prologue: Il était une fois le Prairien. C'était un être évolué de la classe des insectes qui vivait depuis des millénaires dans la prairie, un endroit qu'il appelait affectueusement la planète verte. Le prairien se croyait depuis toujours au centre du monde et de l'univers. Les dieux avaient créé pour lui, un monde à son image dans lequel il devait régner au détriment des autres espèces créées pour le satisfaire.

Hindi in Australia! Behold the future!! : The Tragedy that Await a...

By: Ved from Victoria Institutions

I am posting a writing here which might be mentioned as racist or hate speech or any such thing, by persons who might not know how to contain the arguments. There is nothing racist in my words. For I am not White, and I do not feel that Whites of Continental Europe have any superiority other than what proximity to England can lend to anyone in the world. There might be a query about my right to write this piece of information. I have to mention that I define myself here...

When the native-English speaking students in Australia find themselves being addressed as Thoo / Thum/ Nee &c. and referred to as USS / Avan / Aval &c. all of which are degrading words that paint dirt on a human personality, they have every right to react. If any Hindi or any other feudal language teachers use such words on them, they need to have the courage to give a cracking slap on the teacher.

Paisaje urbano con figura : La invención de una tradición

By: Benjamin Casadiego

En 2013 Colombia vio su vida pública estremecida por un cruento paro agrario que dejó decenas de muertos y un país dividido en las ambiguas percepciones alrededor de la vida en el campo. Mientras esto ocurría, en un pueblo andino al nororiente del país, se desarrollaba un enconado debate alrededor de la pureza del folclor. En un momento ambas historias se cruzan y la ciudad se ve dibujada sobre un nuevo paisaje. El libro tiene el estilo de un reportaje-perfil con u...

"La ciudad es un trazo inconcluso, hecho de memorias y de olvidos, más de olvidos quizás, pero sobre todo, de invenciones. Los seres que la habitan se la inventan día a día. Algunos de ellos son la suma de tales invenciones y asoman al paisaje urbano su figura".

The Firemen interviewed were from the local Salford Fire Brigade near Manchester in England. The areas covered by the research included :- their attitudes to firefighting and to the various types of fires they dealt with : how they dealt with the "down time" when not firefighting : the effect of their shift pattern on their family and leisure time : the overall "work-leisure" relationships of these firemen.

"It's a strange experience when you go in first , and it's really hot.When you go in you usually have a face mask on you know , but your hands are not covered. It's a queer experience. Have you ever put your hands in boiling water? - you pull them out because it is hot but in a hot place there is nowhere to put your hand."

A Critique of Piketty's "Capital in the Twenty-first Century"

By: Dr. Sam Vaknin

In his programmatic and data-laden tome, "Capital in the Twenty-first Century" (2014), Thomas Piketty makes several assertions, two of which merit a closer look: (1) That r (the return on capital) is, in the long-run always greater than g (the growth of the real economy), thus enriching the rich; and (2) that inherited wealth tends to create a "patrimonial" form of capitalism, akin to the aristocracy in the French and British ancient regimes. Putting aside the somewh...

Sosyoloji biliminin tahsili, sosyologlara zaman içinde sosyolojik bir düşünme tarzını sağlamakla birlikte, mevcut standartların ötesine geçecek bakış tarzlarını geliştirme mecburiyeti vardır.
