Positivists believe that sociology can and should use the same methods and approaches to study the social world that “natural” sciences such as biology and physics use to investigate the physical world.
manisha
Positivists believe that good, scientific research should reveal objective truths about the causes of social action – science tells us that water boils at 100 degrees and this is true irrespective of what the researcher thinks – good social research should tell us similar things about social action
manisha
Because positivists want to uncover the general laws that shape human behaviour, they are interested in looking at society as a whole. They are interested in explaining patterns of human behaviour or general social trends. In other words, they are interested in getting to the ‘bigger picture’.
manisha
To do this, positivists use quantitative methods such as official statistics, structured questionnaires and social surveysThese methods also allow the researcher to remain relatively detached from the research process – this way, the values of the researcher should not interfere with the results
manisha
An example of the Positivist tradition in Sociological research – Durkheim’s cross national study of suicide in 1897. 
manisha
Durkheim believed that if he could prove that one of the most individual acts any human being could perform, that is, killing himself or herself, could be explained through social factors, then surely any action could be examined in such a way.

what is sociological imagination
Gh
sociological imagination is to see other's perspective or view on problems or idea or practice.
manisha
Use wider lenses to consider the relationship between your personal experience and society as a whole. This will help you change perspectives on your story and your connections to society, to institutions, to history. Now you’re using the sociological imagination.
manisha
yeah, but just don't deceive yourself in the process.
Leonard
ok but it can be helpful in perceiving own problems in other way but at the end what we think is only matters. sometimes it changes our attitude n thinking n perspective.
manisha
