A: 1.

[ each perspective varies in terms of a) the concepts they supply and b) the different focus within any topic 3.1 Functionalist Theory concepts: social construction of the
self, family reshaped in modern urban industrial society, focus: functional aspects of ways that relalionships adapt as functional features of modern society does rapid social change create 'anomie' (estrangemnt from cultural values) 3.2 Conflict theory: concepts: power, contradictin, aliennation, relations of inequality focus the historcial constructions of inequality, how they effect people today and what current processes of change they are undergoing 3.3 Interractionism Concepts: social construction of the self/selfimage/lookingglass self/role theory/stigma .labelling/signficnatn others /generalised others Focus; small scale and face to face interractions 4. thus the kinds of research question would vary in several ways. for example 4.1 Functionalism research questions: Are social definitions of ''aging' varying with modernisation?
