Sociology is the study of social life, its characteristics, changes, causes and consequences. It combines scientific and humanistic perspectives in the study of historical and contemporary features of social organization. Sociological analyses include the examination of social stratification and inequality, work and industrial relations, family forms and relationships, deviant behavior, social movements and revolutions, globalization, political relations and institutions, and the relationship between the individual and society.
