Identity (6:14) - Here we look at the relationship between the individual and society through the concept of identity and illustrate the differences between personal and social identities.

Sociology and Commonsense (6:49) - Does Sociology go beyond common sense and, if so, how? This film introduces students to some key principles of thinking sociologically by comparing differences between sociological and common sense thinking in relation to crime.
