LASS 820 - Individual & Society


An examination how the individual person is related to society, considering the ways in which society is a separate reality that regulates and even defines the personality and identity of the individual person. After covering some introductory material on culture, definitions of situations, social location, socialization, and deviance, a few sociological works are examined in depth that discuss such subjects as street gangs, ethnicity, social mobility , suicide, morality instincts, and the nature of the self. How the individual can be free in the context of the constraints of society is a major issue addressed within the course. Formerly HU 162
