theory and muller, sociology homework help


1. After viewing the video and the What is Theory lecture, and reading the article by Muller, I would like you to reflect upon the role theory has in enlightening your sociological imagination.  Referencing Muller, identify yourself as a performance-oriented or learning-oriented student. Why do you identify as one or the other?  Think about Muller’s appreciation of a humanistic sociology.  Describe humanistic sociology in your own words.  What do he and others mean by conscientization?  Do you feel you have reached conscientization?  Why or why not?  Exercising one’s sociological imagination means understanding experience in relation to wider society.  Provide an example of the socio-structural outcomes that may be derived from individual problems. How is understanding the sociological imagination both a blessing and a curse?   Provide your own experience with this.  Discuss the various terms regarding sociological knowledge Muller puts forth (i.e. intellectual empathy, intellectual humility, inquisitiveness, critical self-awareness, agentic disposition) and explain your relationship to them.  Pose one or two questions regarding social phenomenon (other than the questions listed in the powerpoint) that you would like theory to help answer.
