Sociology and Me

A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.” Greek Proverb

Welcome to my sociology Critical Insight Blog. I’m enjoying this class because I’ve always been fascinated by society and why people act the way that they do. This class has given me a broad perspective of all the factors that contribute to the formation of society and what drives the people in those societies. Social Sciences are important because humans are social creatures and it’s important to understand why societies exist and what affects them both positively and negatively. Studying society we can find ways to identify potential problems before they happen, and use things  from successful societies to help other societies prosper. Finally, it helps us understand people in general. You may act one way individually, but most of us act differently socially.
