Good Essays
Sociology allows us to understand how different groups of people act

the way they do, and also brings us into their cultures, heritage and

different backgrounds. This study also explains how culture plays a role in

the way different groups act, and how it reflects on their society. There

historical forces effect the way the communities act and how individuals

act. All of these topics stress how important sociology is today, and how

much of a difference it makes in the understanding of different societies.

because that?s their style of living. It could be their culture in a sense but

culture works and functions helps us to get a feel of how the different

cultures relate to each and every one?s society. Through this study we get

a whole new view on how the world is oriented on culture and how every

society acts.
