Environmental Sociology


Environmentalsociology was the underlying framework for which particular issuesand ideas in the final decision were derived from. It is a very broadfield that encompassed methodology and various theories in practicethat were of significance. Regardless of the idea, when it comes toenvironmental sociology, the key element is the one that made socialstructure visible. It led to the identification of a stable andresilient social structure that became very cogent at the end (Bell,Michael Mayerfeld, and Loka L. Ashwood124).Environmental sociology links the environment to the society, on theother side, environmental theories try to explain the abstractunderstanding of the environs from a visualization perspective of theunderstanding. General they make what was not clear to become clearer(Pellow240).

Sociologistanalyzes how our societal position affects our attitude towards theenvironment. Nature and environment are always seen as the realrevelation of power. Contemporary research on agonistic has presenteda various understanding of sociological studies (Lidskog360).The issues can be based on empirical statistics but often areconcerned with constructivism and ideological. Various theories havebeen advanced to explain these institutional theory and culturalapproach are among the commonly used theories in this area.

Sociologyissues bring in various attitudes alongside actions that human beingstake nature to be. For instance, there is a distinctive line thatseparates other animals and human beings.The line is the one thatarouses various attitudes and actions that people take towards thesociety(Pellow240).For instance, some people take cats us pets others hate them, somebecame glad when they observe nature, several goes to the extent ofshaving and applying cosmetics on their body to distinguishthemselves from the family of animals. The theories present to us theexplicit meaning of nature and the line that separates the generalnature from the society of human beings(An environmental sociology for the twenty-first century)

Theoryhelps in broadening the understanding of nature, building hypothesisand sometimes blind people and generates bad attitudes towardsnature.(Aninvitation to environmental sociology).Scholars should always discard theories that have no empiricalsupport of their proposition to avoid the wrong attitude of peopletowards the environment (Bell,Michael Mayerfeld, and Ashwood126).For example the issue of trucks and butterflies nature space and theadvancement.
