What is it?
Macionis and Plummer assert that “Sociology’s basic insight is that where we are placed in a society profoundly affects individual experiences.”
Translated, this means that our geographical location, social class position, culture, for eg., have the potential to affect our life chances as individuals and nations. Sociology helps us to see that and to examine it.
