This class was tough.
I would recommend this course due to the fact that it is thought provoking in crucial in order to understand ourselves and those around us.
Why is it important to be pensive and to be constantly thinking? Anyone can memorize a passage or terms but what makes a person different is how imaginative they can be, how innovative they are. Through imagination and understanding the source of improvement and advancements are unlocked. Why is it important to understand oneself? Well, in order to understand why we fight for what we want, or why we place effort in things we must, we must acknowledge ourselves, our potential, and what valuable to us. In addition, to reach the awareness of said wanted goals, we face and improve our weaknesses and strengthen our strengths. Sociology helped me realize that there are many types of people in this world. As time moves on, we must accept ourselves, be self-aware and think in order to improve ourselves as well as the people around us.
