Welcome to Exploring Society Blog:
This is a forum for discussing issues in contemporary society from a sociological perspective. On this journey we adopt the Peter Berger’s motto – “It can be said that the first wisdom of sociology is this: things are not what they seem. ……….Social reality turns out to have many layers of meaning. The discovery of each new layer changes the perception of the whole.”
This blog is designed to be a connection between sociology courses and the social issues of our time. Students in courses are encouraged to apply their sociological imagination to events that occur in our globalized world. This blog aims be a focal point for the continual discussion of issues that are raised in the classroom and course content.
You are invited to place comments, questions and participate in the discussions.
