Introducing Sociology

Sociology is interested in the ways people shape the society they live in, and the ways society shapes them. Simply, it is the study of what modern society is and how it functions.

In the series’ inimitable style, Introducing Sociology traces the origins of sociology from industrialization, revolution and the Enlightenment through to globalization, neoliberalism and the fear of nationalism — introducing you to key thinkers, movements and concepts along the way.

You will develop insight into the world around you, as you engage your ‘sociological imagination’ and explore studies of the city, theories of power and knowledge, concepts of national, racial and sexual identity, and much more.

    Nationalism represents an attempt by social groups to defend themselves from these threats

    Smith also criticized modernism for its failure to address the passion of nationalism. It cannot answer the question: why die for the nation? For Smith, the answer lies in the “sacred community” of shared memories and ancestry.
