Sociology


Sociology is the scientific study of society. It is a social science which uses various methods of empirical investigation and critical analysis to develop a body of knowledge about human social activity. For many sociologists the goal is to conduct research which may be applied directly to social policy and welfare, while others focus primarily on refining the theoretical understanding of social processes. Subject matter ranges from the micro level of individual agency and interaction to the macro level of systems and the social structure.

By: Florentin Smarandache; Andrușa R. Vătuiu

The future can only be the Spiral Neutrosophic Evolution: - from inferior () to superior () [evolution], - and back [involution] to an inferior and superior melange (), - and over time we encounter stagnation (no evolution, no involution) or uncertainty (if it is evolution or involution) [indetermination] ... and so on, in a spiral. Therefore: evolution / involution / indetermination at a level; followed by another similar cycle: evolution / involution / indetermin...

Introduction to Neutrosophic Sociology (Neutrosociology)

By: Florentin Smarandache

Neutrosophic Sociology (or Neutrosociology) is the study of sociology using neutrosophic scientific methods. The huge social data that we face in sociology is full of indeterminacy: it is vague, incomplete, contradictory, hybrid, biased, ignorant, redundant, superfluous, meaningless, ambiguous, unclear, etc. That’s why the neutrosophic sciences (which deal with indeterminacy), through the process of neutrosophication, are involved, such as: neutrosophy (a new branch of...

By: Maikel Leyva Vázquez; Florentin Smarandache

El concepto estratégico de muchos modelos de gestión pública está basados en un futuro conexo. Bajo esta perspectiva se podría intentar atrapar al futuro como previsión de los resultados, delinear acciones eficaces, efectivas, proactivas y unívocas. Pero el mañana en la administración pública es el resultado de procesos emergentes, de escenarios inciertos que dependen de la conjunción de variables inestables que rompen con la tradicional certidumbre y desacomoda la actua...

Communication Neutrosophic Routes

By: Florentin Smarandache, Editor; Ştefan Vlăduţescu, Editor

The life of human beings is a place of communication. Consequently, any cognitive and cogitative manifestation presents a route of communication. People consume their lives relating by communicational. Some communicational relationships are contradictory, others are neutral, since within the manifestations of life there are found conflicts meanings and/or neutral meanings. Communicational relations always comprise a set of neutral, neutrosophic meanings. Particularly, we...

Topical Communication Uncertainties

By: Stefan Vladutescu, Editor; Florentin Smarandache, Editor

Communication is the main way of defusing uncertainties. Unfortunately, communication discipline itself is mined by uncertainties. We can talk about onto-epistemological uncertainties and pragmatic uncertainties of communication, about theoretical and practical uncertainties, and about primary and secondary uncertainties of communication. Uncertainties regarding the object of communication as autonomous discipline, the research methods of communication, the sources, para...

Current Communication Difficulties

By: Florentin Smarandache, Editor; Stefan Vladutescu, Editor

Our thesis is that communication has several sources. Some may be considered as main sources or constitutive sources from which communication springs, and others may be considered as secondary or complementary sources of communication. We can thus acknowledge eight main sources of communication: rhetoric, persuasion, psychology, sociology, anthropology, semiotics, linguistics and political science. Rhetoric is the first and oldest discipline which studied certain communi...

Rama Trauma Trump : I Left the Cult and Now Look What Happened: I ...

By: Mark Eliot Laxer; Marcie Vallette, Illustrator

How does a destructive cult work? Is the current president more than a bit like a cult leader? This nonfiction book speaks to both these questions in a brief, highly accessible graphic format educational for teens and adults alike. Dark and humorous, and scary.

“The bottom line is that he’s wrong about me,” I thought, my self confidence germinating, the way pine seeds flourish when their cones are scorched by fire. “I’m not possessed by demons, mentally ill, or bent on destruction. I’m OKAY.”

Emoțiile și inteligența emoțională în organizații

By: Nicolae Sfetcu

O argumentare a importanței dualiste a emoțiilor în societate, individual și la nivel de comunitate. Tendința actuală de conștientizare și control al emoțiilor prin inteligența emoțională are un efect benefic în afaceri și pentru succesul activităților sociale dar, dacă nu suntem atenți, poate duce la o alienare ireversibilă la nivel individual și social. Lucrarea se compune din trei părți principale: Emoții (Modele ale emoțiilor, Procesarea emoțiilor, Fericirea, Filosof...

1. Emoții Emoția este o stare mentală indusă de unul sau mai mulți stimuli interni sau externi, (Panksepp 2004) (A. R. Damasio 1998) (Ekman și Davidson 1994) care determină modificări corporale chimice, răspunsuri comportamentale și o anumită stare. (Cabanac 2002) (D. L. Schacter, Gilbert, și Wegner 2011) Emoția este într-o interdependență permanentă cu starea de spirit, temperamentul, personalitatea, dispoziția și motivația persoanei respective.

Who is Framing the Anthropos? : From Cosmic Cogs to Cosmic Partners

By: Pierre Marcel Louys

My hope therefore in undertaking this investigation into our social evolution and the framing of the anthropos, was to discern new ways out of the ‘blizzard’ in order to guard humanity from its chronic blind faith in either in an anthropomorphic deity or a super-human ruler.

The future of the anthropos is tightly linked with the global human society. Fundamental change in society can emerge only through freely undertaken radical change in the individual. Individuals can and will maintain their humanity and freedom through ‘real’ education. Only the indubitable features found within the reflecting subject can serve as an absolute foundation and as a basis for understanding the nature of the world. From this solitary standpoint (courage entail...

Taking Action for a Better Tomorrow

By: Jeremy P. Boggess

In our world today there are monumental and exponential changes occurring. These changes are happening not just in the local, international, or global arenas, but even within ourselves. Let us explore the necessary actions and responsibilities that will help guide us into our future. It is important to look beyond isolationism or globalization. Politics, the different governments and cultures in the world, and our environment are significant contributing factors, but we...

Chapter One: Changes Occurring in the Fractionalized World of Today Threshold I feel that something is happening worldwide. I believe that we now stand at the “threshold” of current society and maybe even the future of our species. Is this a new dawn, or the end? Some changes are occurring that are beyond the ability and daring of our modern world to even report. No matter where our politics, beliefs, or tendencies lean, we must admit that there are strange movemen...

The Cornerstone

By: Whick Withy

I've always had a lot of questions. Like, why does everyone say, "We're just human"? Like it is some sort of verbal stain remover. Or, "Things change"? As if it were an absolution and a reprieve rather than a self-defeating proposal. The Golden Rule, as far as I can see, is, "Don't get caught" - to the bitter end. Or, "That's just life"? Like it is some sort of all purpose cleaner. Of course, the central question was always why is mankind so very screwed up? Then it hit me....

This stunning difference between human and animal completely befuddled our primitive ancestors and still takes modern humans by surprise, disabling our ability to don the mantle of our sentience. It leaves us baffled and deceived. A sentient endeavor is required that will transform all of mankind like a butterfly leaving its cocoon.

Evolution and Ethics of Eugenics

By: Nicolae Sfetcu

As eugenics is defined, it is very difficult to make a clear distinction between science (medicine, genetic engineering) and eugenics as a included field. And to set a line over which genetic engineering should not go further, according to moral, legal and religious norms. If we accept the help of genetics in finding ways to fight cancer, diabetes, or HIV, we also accept positive eugenics as they are defined now. And if we accept genetic screening, and interventions on t...

In this article, I try to argue that, as eugenics is defined, it is very difficult to make a clear distinction between science (medicine, genetic engineering) and eugenics as a included field. And to set a line over which genetic engineering should not go further, according to moral, legal and religious norms. If we accept the help of genetics in finding ways to fight cancer, diabetes, or HIV, we also accept positive eugenics as they are defined now. And if we accept gen...

Epistemology of Intelligence Agencies

By: Nicolae Sfetcu

About the analogy between the epistemological and methodological aspects of the activity of intelligence agencies and some scientific disciplines, advocating for a more scientific approach to the process of collecting and analyzing information within the intelligence cycle. I assert that the theoretical, ontological and epistemological aspects of the activity of many intelligence agencies are underestimated, leading to incomplete understanding of current phenomena and co...

Information is power. This perception has intensified during the Second World War, when several intelligence agencies has been formalized and significantly increased. In all countries, new agencies and departments have been set up to deal with threats. Governments are currently spending huge amounts for the intelligence agencies that are considered a major component of national security systems. The intelligence agencies are primarily responsible for identifying and prev...
