Journal Article — “Money Does Not Buy Happiness”: Using the Sociological Imagination to Move Beyond Stressful Lives — by Jillian Pelletier
Using her sociological imagination, in this paper the author applies various sociological concepts and theories (phenomenological sociology, symbolic interactionism, social exchange/rational choice theory, functionalism, conflict theory, and the postmodern perspective) to explore the role played by money, materialism, and media, as sources of undue stress in her life.
