SOCIOLOGICAL SCHOOL Imp Theorist: Roscoe Pound, Montesquieu The sociological school of law is among the many theories that were framed by numerous scholars from time to time. The significance of individuals was proclaimed by theorists and scholars. The sociological school came about with the inevitability to stabilise and promote the welfare of the civilisation and the individual. There was an inclination towards socialization. Thus, the importance of the society should be measured in light of the individual and the importance of the individual should be considered in light of the society.
INTRODUCTION Society is a collection of people that influences individual’s life and behavior. It is generally the groups of people that are complying with the same rules and laws that allows them to live altogether. All over the world, talks about society and its issues that are prominent and inevitable. This paper intends to presents different points about social issues. Through sociological perspective, we can view the society by the way it was set up and how it affects us.
The exchange theory and ecological perspective states that social conditions are influenced through interpersonal and intergroup transactions. Thus, all four paradigms dominate contemporary American sociology, they all involve the interaction between society’s members, and they all help make practical sense of everyday life. The Functionalism and the Systems Paradigm The functionalism and the systems paradigm states that society has functional needs and that the form of society will change to meet those needs
1. Introduction The study of sociology involves observing how social interactions and the rules imposed on society govern human behaviour. It is a useful tool that can be used to understand how society function, identify and overcome some of the challenges corporate habitation in the form of organisations, religions, civilizations and institutions face . There are three major perspectives that are implemented when analysing the way in which society influences structure and regulates discipline in these organizations, namely; critical social science, positivist social science or interpretivist social science . Positivist social science also known as positivism is a quantitative analysis technique with an objective of modeling society
Ethnography is the study of social interactions, behaviours, and perceptions that occur within groups, teams, organisations, and communities. The central aim of ethnography is to provide rich, holistic insights into people’s views and actions. (Reeves et al, 2017). The term ethnography has come to be equated with virtually any qualitative research project where the intent is to provide a detailed, in-depth description of everyday life and practice. Qualitative research can be described as social science research in comparison to quantitative research is statistically orientated research (Hoey, 2017).
Social Institutions Definition and Main Features Social institutions may be defined as practices based on similar principles that display some degree of regularity. More specifically, a social institution is an interrelated system of social roles and social norms, organized around the satisfaction of an important social need or social function (Team of Experts, 2000). In general, a social institution is an established pattern of behavior that is organized to perpetuate the welfare of society and to preserve its form. From the above definition, we can observe that social institutions have got some important functions. Three of such main functions are: (a) perpetuation of the welfare of society, (b) preservation and maintenance of the form of society, and (c) meeting the major needs of the members of society.
1 INTRODUCTION The administrative management theory attempts to find rational ways to design an organization as a whole. The theory generally calls for a formalized official construction, a clear separation of labor, and delegation of power and authority to administrators relevant to their spans of responsibilities. This paper aims to comprehensively clarify the origins of the administrative theory with meticulous reference to its respective contributors as general administrative theorist considering the significance of the theory as a whole and clarifying its role. The essay begins with definition of terms related to the administrative theory as a whole. This will then be followed by looking into detail of the origins of the theory in order
As human well-being and community welfare encompass many factors and sectors of people and their society, development requires multidisciplinary approaches in the analyses. As defined by Allen (2000), development is a multidisciplinary, social science branch which accentuates issues concerning to developing countries. Development involves historical analyses of particular societies and places, including the discussion on various issues related to social, culture, politics, technology, and economic aspects of development. The discourse covers the development analysis in the developing and the developed countries. However, most of the development planners put their emphasis more on economic development as elaborated by Leys (2005).
