Transcript of Social interaction-ism and Religion

With symbolic Interaction Perspective
Lets start with
What's religion?
A set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe.
Usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.
It gives us values and norms to follow, which in turn keeps us, humans, "in line" and ultimately serving the greater good of humanity.
Now lets talk about
What is Symbolic Interaction Perspective ?
It is a theory based on how humans develop a complex set of symbols to give meanings to the world.
It focuses on how people interact in a society through symbols such as:
Words (language)
The meanings of such symbols evolves from one society to other, some times families as well depending upon the situation!
All human interactions are subjectively interpreted through existing symbols.
Now that we know what's a religion and what is Symbolic interaction perspective, lets see how....
Religions use Symbolic Interactions!
In symbolic interaction, religion by itself is a symbol, but as this theory focuses on micro level, religion must br devided into many smaller subsets.
Lets look at some examples:
Islam-The Star and Crescent
Buddhism-The Dharma Wheel
Christianity-The Cross
Jainism-Ahimsa Hand
Taoism-Yin and Yang
Shinto-Torri Gate
