The Sociologically Examined Life: Pieces of the Conversation
While the usual introductory sociology text emphasizes defining key concepts in the field, the rigidity of this structure creates a need for a text that teaches real-world application of these concepts. The Sociologically Examined Life: Pieces of the Conversation prides itself on being an"anti-text," a tool that demonstrates how to recognize and utilize sociological thinking in the real world. The conversational writing encourages discussion - and debate - over ideas that are provocative and personal, and pushes students to think critically about what makes them feel the way theydo. The Sociologically Examined Life draws from examples that are culturally relevant to today's students, and encourages students to apply sociological thinking to their everyday lives and to reflect on their own roles as active players in the social world.
