By the end of this chapter, and having completed the essential reading and
activities, you should have a clearer idea of:

• how to study sociology, what is meant by active learning, and what

examiners will be looking for

• what sociologists study
• some of the key ways that sociology gives us insights that go beyond

commonsense understanding

• what is meant by thinking sociologically and sociologists’ interest in

social order, social change and the relationship between the individual
and society

• how our identities arise from social relationships
• what sociologists mean by socialisation and identity, and how Parsons

and Mead put forward different explanations of these processes.
