...Sociological theorists Sociological Theorists. One of the sociological theorists I identify with the most is Emile Durkheim who developed the functionalist perspective in sociology. Durkheim had a keen interest on the possibility of social order and how the society succeeds to maintain stability. I identify with Emile Durkheim for a number of reasons, which stem from the arguments he makes in the functionalism theory. First, Durkheim explains each component of the society in terms of the functions it plays to the stability of the entire society (Isajiw, 2003). Durkheim can be credited for his explanations that the entire system can be regarded more crucial than the sum of the parts... the...

Herbert Mead shares a similar opinion because he says that the socialization process involves “role taking’, in which we make assumptions on the perceptions the society has about the self. These assumptions guide human behavior in the societal context. On the other hand, Erving Goffman emphasizes on the need for self-image to enhance the socialization process. Sigmund Freud sees the self as the most primitive part of a person’s personality, which the conscience guides. All the four philosophers agree on the influence and...

...Sociological Imagination Sociological imagination is the concept that enables people to think themselves away from the common routines of life and have a look at them in a new way. In order to get a sociological imagination, one must distance himself/herself and pull away from a situation that is in hand. One must think from another point of view. Willingness to observe the social world at appoint of others stimulates the sociological imagination. This involves abandoning the thoughts of oneself and the problems, then focus on the social circumstances that bring about the social problems (Ho). One can change from thinking of a single family to a national budget, from a person in poverty... ...

...Sociological Imagination      Abstract This paper looks at sociological imagination, unemployment and its impact, and the association between personal occurrences and the social effect of unemployment. A number of studies indicate that unemployment affects an individual personally and the whole community. In addition, sociological imagination tries to explain social results from the point of view of social actions, actors, and social context (Mills, 1959). This helps to explain how unemployment may lead to several results, for example, crime, deviance, poverty, among other vices. Also, this paper illustrates how sociological imagination helps to perceive things or circumstances socially, how...

Which someone’s conscience tends to try to answer questions about a certain behavior or action of a certain individual or group of individuals (Biology Online, 2005).
