162. Is Religion a Conservative Force?

Description

This Sociology Factsheet will examine whether religion (ideas, institutions and influences) tends to be a conservative influence on society and individuals or, on the contrary, whether it can be a radical force, pushing individuals and societies towards change. We will also consider the possibility that religion may act in different ways across different societies and in different times.
