  1. structural sociology

    Structural sociology is a theoretical approach within the field of sociology that emphasizes the significance of social structures in shaping individual behaviors, societal patterns, and overall social organization. It suggests that a person's behaviors, attitudes, and opportunities are heavily influenced by the broader structures in society, such as social classes, institutions, and cultural norms. This approach often involves the analysis of social networks, social roles, and social institutions to understand societal dynamics. It largely focuses on the underlying patterns or structures of social relations and interactions rather than individual attributes or interactions.
