Topic: Macrosociology

In the News (Thu 18 Jul 19)

  Macrosociology | Encyclopedia of Sociology
Sociologists distinguish macrosociology from microsociology, which focuses on the social activities of individuals and small groups.
As with many other oppositional concepts, however, the boundary between microsociology and macrosociology is not clearly distinguished, and at the margins there is much room for overlap.
A useful means of distinguishing between the two approaches is based on the concept of "units of analysis." Macrosociology uses as its subjects structural-level units of analysis or cases that are larger than observations of individual action and interaction.

 Abstract for Problematics of Sociology
He traces the decline of interest in the nonrational aspects of social movement and identifies mesosociological aspects of institutional life that bear special attention--"imagined" institutions and agents that represent institutions.
Smelser calls for a renewed emphasis on the differentiation--or complexity--of social structure, notes the increasing salience of cultural diversification, and points to the decline of social class and the increasing salience of more open, multidimensional stratification in contemporary societies.
Chapter 3 defines macrosociology as dealing with social structure and societies overall.

Macrosociology (Greek, 'sociology in large') is the study of whole societies, large-scale social groups, organizations or social systems.
Compare, for example, the different societal contexts against which a west European carries on his or her life to that of a Siberian nomad.
Macrosociology is often contrasted with microsociology which refers to the study of human behaviour in situations of face-to-face interaction; though the distinction between the two is not a rigid one.

 [No title]
It is widely understood that no one theory can fully explain all the complexities of social life, hence an individual theory is usually supported by other theories.
Social life can be studied between person-to-person encounters or through large scale characteristics of social structure respectively termed microsociology and macrosociology.
Sociological theories all differ in their explanations of social life but are unique is that they attempt to enable a better understanding of the common occurrences that we all encounter.

During the interwar period sociology contined to expand in United States, but made much less progress in Europe, where it was attacked both by increasingly totalitarian governments and rejected by conservative universities.
Meanwhile, in United States, the focus of sociology changed from macrosociology interested in evolution of societies towards microsociology, eventually resulting in the development of the structural-functional theory by Talcott Parsons in the 1930s.
In the second half of the 20th century, sociology has been increasingly employed as a tool by governments and businesses, tried to balance macro- and microsociology and increasingly utilised quantitative research.

Another way it develops is in response to challenging questions posed by public leaders, policy makers, and the community at large, in which these people at least implicitly look to macrosociology
I do not presume that whatever we learn from the EU experience will necessarily apply to other regions, let alone the world, but it serves to highlight the challenging issues sociological theory might help to illuminate.

 The Lifeworld Strikes Back III: Microsociology and Skillful Interaction a
So far, with Systems World I and II (Marxist and Weberian) and Lifeworld I and II (Durkheimian and Parsonian) theories we’ve been looking at macrosociology, which focusses on large scale aspects of society.
Individual acts are the focus of microsociology as opposed to the large-scale processes of macrosociology.
Here’s an analogy for you: where macrosociology (everything that we’ve been looking at so far) says society is like this building we are born into, microsociology says that we build the building ourselves, brick by damn brick.

I seek in this chapter to intervene in what is in fact a rather long-standing debate.
But, I aim to show, they are present to no less a degree in case-oriented studies and, contrary to what several prominent authors have maintained or implied, the latter can claim no special advantages in dealing with them.
Largely on account of misconceptions in this regard, I conclude, much recent discussion has tended to obscure, and divert attention away from, questions of method that comparative macrosociology does now need to engage with more actively - in whatever style it may be carried out.
