Week 4 Sociology Social Control Discussion
I’m stuck on a Sociology question and need an explanation.
Respond to the following
In the past few weeks of sociological study, you have explored views of individual development and group dynamics. This week you will study societal dynamics, which includes social control and social inequality.
According to the reading, social deviance can be perceived as positive or negative, depending on the context.
Provide an original example of social deviance (not one from the book) that might be considered negative. Provide another that might be considered positive. Explain why each example might be perceived as negative or positive. How might the concept of social control contribute to the negative or positive perception?
