Sociological Thinkers - Doubt

Posted by @hiteshd

Dont know whether this is a right forum to put my query, but actually I didnt find any talking specifically about socio.

Wanted to know, from where to study Conformity and Deviance of Robert K Merton(not able to find this in IGNOU and Ritzer) and Sociological Thinker Mead(Not able to find it in IGNOU, though couple of pages are dedicated to Mead in Ritzer but dont know if it actually talks about self and identity, though I am yet to read Mead from Ritzer).

Please suggest or let me know if I am missing anything

    Get Sociology Themes & Perspectives by Haralambos & Heald or Haralambos & Holborn for Merton and Mead. I do not have Ritzer, hence cannot comment.

    Merton is very well covered by ritzer. Also Mead is best covered in mead. How can't you find them? Place search the PDF Merton is in neofunctionalism. Mead is in interactionism along with goffman. Do selective reading

    Thank You. That is great help. I have downloaded all of them, Giddens one is getting failed since it is huge 120MB. At least there is no option "Add to My Drive", that link is direct.

  • In the above link, IGNOU material is there, but is it BA or MA ?
    If it is of BA, please share MA if you have, and vice versa

  • Sorry I don't have MA ones.. These are of BA... In case I get it.. I shall upload them here..

  • Doubt in social facts - plz clarify
    If pathological as against normal social facts are those that are not as widespread. Then how can it be social fact?
    Social facts are those that are held by the average members of the society? Then how come pathological be social facts?
    Also often cited example of high rates of suicide or crime - Who is to say high rates What is the reference?
    ·
  • I think they are pathological facts only when a significant no. Of people are going fr deviation...not for 1-2 exceptional cases

  • Guys you can also check our Aditya Mongra Sir's Online Notes at his Facebook Group: Sociology @ Aditya Mongra. Seems to be the best notes for Civils preparation.
