If you want to understand how a plant has developed, you might look at the properties of the soil, the levels of light or the air temperature of its environment. If you want to understand how an individual has grown into the person they are today, you might look at their family, education or cultural background. Sociologists look at how wider society shapes us and influences our beliefs and behaviours. If you are the kind of person that likes to ask questions about the world around you, then sociology is the subject for you.
