The level of study, in terms of this subject matter, would provide a vast level of research potential. As studies would be completed throughout history, in assessing the capabilities of human beings as a race, “Humans are the most complex creatures on the planet,” (Sociology, n.d., para.1). With the level of complexity suggested, in terms of the reference noted, it would serve to elude that, such richness seen in the human condition in the form of the various layers present, would provide for incredible reasons to research the overall subject, with the present possibility of many things learned afterward.
For one thing, “The society in which we live has a lot to do with our choices in food, clothing, music, schooling, jobs, and just about everything else,” (Macionis, 2009, p.2). This would fall within the notion of Sociology Today, in that it would outline the level at which sociology itself, would maintain itself level of influence throughout. A considerable amount of decisions made by individuals would ultimately find the influence of the greater society to be great, in terms of its ability to influence.
It is more than possible, for anyone within a society, to observe the events and/or other people around them, in a sociological manner. At the heart of the matter, “Sociology shows us that our place in society shapes our life experiences,” (Macionis, 2009, p. 5). For many individuals, they often times find themselves in the position of re-evaluating elements of their respective lives and as the citation asserts sociology in itself would provide the means of being able to do just that. To be able to make the decisions necessary, if needed that would in return, place the individual(s) on the right path toward the future that they would wish to be on.
