Study of Family Interaction

Philip K. Zimbardo, professor of Psychology at Stanford University, began researching how prisoners and guards assume submissive and authoritarian roles. He set out to do this by placing advertisements in a local newspaper, stating that male college students wou...

Social Scholarship
As I have matured as a student and a scholar it has become more clear to me that in today\'s society with all it\'s talk of multi-culturalism and melting pot rhetoric it is blatantly clear that much of the discourse regarding the social world is rooted in Euro-centric research and ideology. As such, I content that it is the role of the African American sociologist to shift the center of analysis from a European focus to one that is inclusive of all people represented in this society. This can o...

Socail Darwinism
Darwin is not responsible for \'Social Darwinism.\' War and oppression have always been components of human history, however with the introduction of Darwin\'s theory of evolution man had a new justification for his cruelty.

The prime component of Darwin\'s ideas revolves around the notion that life progresses by natural selection - the survival of the fittest.

Same Sex Marriage
Society does not accept same sex marriges. There are various reasons for this. Many people feel that same sex marriges are not natural, and go against religious beliefs. Some people may be homophobic feel that gays and lesbians do not deserve to be united legally on paper, or under the blessings of God. Homosexuals want to marry for the same reason that heterosexuals have and there should be no reason why they are not allowed to. Marriage is much more than merely a commitment to love one anothe...

Redefinition of Social Institutions
The Redefinition of Sociological Institutions So long as there are economic fluctuations, homogamy amongst subcultures worldwide, and the willingness of people and researchers to multi-laterally communicate towards achieving the quality of life desired by all groups, there will remain the possibility of "re-defining" sociological institutions. To name a few from the wide spectrum of possibilities, two institutions that have been significantly "redefined" by time are the American family culture...

Protestant Ethics of Webber
Max Weber’s original theory on the rise of Capitalism in Western Europe has been an often studied theory. In its relationship to Protestantism, specifically Calvinism, Weber’s theory has been in scholarly debate since it’s release in 1904. "The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism" puts forth not capitalism as an institute, but as the precursor to the historical origins of capitalism.

Music Impact on Everyday Life

It is an important part of the sociological self, which causes a person to feel and act in a certain manner.

I have taken a particular interest in the way that different genres of music affect student’s actions at this university. This...

A vivid description about the mall’s interior design makes the audience feel like they have visited the mall.

Japanese Americans
The Japanese Americans have maintained loyalty to the United States throughout the history of there immigration beginning in 1843 (Leathers, 6). Over the years, they have persevered through the trials and tribulations of discrimination and prejudice.

They overcame this obstacle, and became productive citizens of the United States of America. The immigration of the Japanese into the United...

Forcing Animals for Human Entertainment
Forcing wild animals to perform for the sake of human entertainment has caused numerous unnecessary injuries and deaths to both humans and animals alike. Have you been to the zoo and watched the monkeys running in circles? Or a bear just sleeping forever? What about that gorilla that stared at you with that bored and sad look ? These are typical scenes from zoos where captive animals are receiving essential care, but not much to enrich their psychological well-being. In order to somewhat justif...

Euthanasia
Euthanasia in my opinion has many circumstances yielding many different opinions on this subject. The first circumstance that comes to mind is that of a person such as that discussed in the text, where a person, young or old is suffering from some type of terminal illness. This circumstance is obviously one in which the patient is destined to death and is in obvious pain. Though I would not want to make this decision myself I do not think that the patient should be denied of their “right...

Education the Student
Let us define a student to be someone who makes a study of something. Furthermore, allow study to be defined as the active pursuit of knowledge. For instance, someone who studies because they crave the acquisition of a particular knowledge is doing so actively, whereas someone who studies because they are required (i.e. the college student who is attending college solely for the purpose of a degree) is not. Integrating the two definitions, we deduce that a student is someone who actively pursue...
