I’m working on a sociology discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
- Prompt: Sociology As Science – After reading Chapter 2 in your text, explain the difference between common-sense knowledge and what we know to be true because of scientific research. The text uses the example of suicide. Give an example of something that you have known and believed; after further examination, your common-sense knowledge may or may not be true based on scientific research. Provide any factual information you found to prove or disprove your initial claim.
