8/30/07 DSOC 101 Social being (society) exists independently of the individual’s will & thoughts o individuals come and go while society will always remain Yet it determines how we think- an alien power that controls our brains? Marx makes fun of German philosophers who reiterate and reformulate the ideology of the german middle class. These philosophers are immature examples of “social consciousness”, “theoretical bubble-blowers” (p. 19) Science of Society For social science to be valid, the scientist must think independently of the object of investigation (society) – yet most social scientists fail to do this The formula “social being determines social consciousness” suggests this wil be difficult (academic success, commercial success, and the like, can obliterate social scientific thinking) o Ppl don’t express what they think instead what is conveyed by society (artists at times are an exception) Clicker Q: What is social being?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
