    which Sumner (1994) had previously claimed a vast similarity. A central claims of Roach-Anleu’s is although deviance is the act of ‘norm violation’, there is not a universal understanding of what is considered a ‘norm’. Therefore deviance is a product of its environment, time and context. Unlike claims that deviance is a study of ‘the exotic other’ involving inexplicable behaviour. Roach-Anleu (2005) continues to suggest the indifference between ‘deviant’ and ‘deviance’ described in the literature claiming the ‘death’ of deviance may be a critical element to the argument. Claiming the hostility may be due to a flawed assumption that the sociology of deviance is instead the sociology of ‘deviants’. Iterating that for sociologists, the two terms are theoretically different, affirming “the notion of ‘deviant’ converts the person or group to this designation, and distinguishes them as the deviant ‘other’ from everyone else who is assumed to be conforming.” (Roach-Anleu, 2005). The McGuffin that refuses to die: an investigation into the condition of the sociology of deviance (Goode, 2003) has a similar approach to the condition of the sociology of deviance, using analogies to compare Sumner’s ‘Death’ of deviance to a ‘McGuffin’ or smokescreen, an insignificant distraction in the area of sociology. Mervyn F. Bendle of James Cook University explores the sociology of deviances’ ‘state of crises’ with The death of the sociology of deviance? (1999) Published in the Journal of…

    ANTIGONE, by Jean Anouilh, is a masterful version of Sophocles’ original tragedy; which delves deeply into the theme of responsibility and duty. Duty is something one is “obligated to do.” Responsibility is described as doing something one “feels is necessary,” as well as “having capacity for moral decisions and therefore accountable” (Webster’s Dictionary). The theme of responsibility and duty transcends the shallow meaning of the words themselves; it illustrates the internal driving force…

    may have some truth to it, it is not completely sound. When a company, organization, or government is a part of or responsible for a tragedy, it is their moral responsibility to do everything they possibly can to support and offer help to those negatively affected by the tragic event. The government’s solution was to give Dennett a new body, but they also attached Hubert to this body, which means that they really never properly fixed the initial problem, they instead created a new one. What we…

    The concept of infinity is the closest thing that resembles how complicated life is. Take away one from infinity and you still have infinity; take away a complication from life and life is still complicated. One of those many complicated factors in life is responsibility, which is just another part of life that does not have a simple explanation. The complex nature of responsibility makes it difficult for me to give an absolute answer on what I perceive to be my responsibility, for all I can do…

    Corporations, from Coca-Cola to Disney to Apple, make billions of money off of us. Given that a lot of people’s income goes to corporations like these, do they have a responsibility to act in an ethical manner? Should they be allowed to release products such as the Samsung Note 7 which repeatedly caught on fire? It is my opinion that they should not, that corporations should have the responsibility to act in an ethical manner as it would lead to the overall greater good. The issue of…
