Modern Sociological Theory

 
Arvind Kumar (Editor)
Synopsis The basic insight of sociology is that human behaviour is largely shaped by the groups to which people belong and by the social interaction that takes place within those groups. The main focus of sociology is the group, not the individual. Sociologist is mainly interested in the interaction between people—the ways in which people act towards, respond to, and influence one another. Sociology, does not, however, study everything that happens in society or under social conditions. For example, sociologist study religion only insofar as it affects social relationship, i.e., the relationship of man to man, of one group to another, or of one group to the whole society. While dealing with the elements of ‘human relationship’ in diverse fields covered by various social sciences-sociology seeks to discover the inter-relationship of human activities in the fields-familial, education, economic, political or religious. The basic assumption on which the sociologists proceed is that what happens in any of these fields affects others. In other words, sociology is concerned with the ‘whole’ of human society, and not with parts which make-up the whole. Hence, a book on Modern Sociological theory is most wanted. In view of the above, the present attempt is made to describe the different aspects of modern theory generally being explained by the social scientists and it is hoped that it will be of great use for all those concerned with sociology.
