Sociology p.2-27 Thoughts As I read through pages 2-27 I learned a lot more about sociology as a whole than I ever thought I could have.

I find this to be extremely interesting due to the fact that I have always liked to observe how people interact in different social situations. It then goes into describing what sociology as a science looks like. I found this to be very intriguing. I have always thought as sociology and psychology as a type of science. I find it really interesting that not everyone has this same viewpoint. This now leaves me to talk about sociological imagination. Even though sociology doesn’t give you a straight, forward answer about something, the science behind it lies in the research and statistics and how sociological situations play out due to how people differ in terms of their places in a given social or historical circumstance. This now leads me to talk about the generalization of sociology.
