Principles of Sociology

Five principles guide sociology, the social science dedicated to the study of society:

  1. People behave differently in groups than they do as individuals.
  2. People obey rules that are socially constructed.
  3. People socially construct the rules.
  4. Some people have more say-so than others in making the rules.
  5. There are rewards for following the rules and penalties for breaking the rules.
