It is concerned with patterned social regularities rather than with unique personal experiences. Simply means that sociology is the study of the things around the society.

Though people have their own ways of living, each of us may consider that ethics is very important in everyone’s life. Based on Emerita S.

In general, ethics is meant to be applied in order to teach the people how to live essentially doing the right one.
