2UNDERSTANDING SOCIETYIntroductionThe assignment discusses the influence of societal beliefs upon individual andcommunity. In this assignment two different aspects of the society such associalconstructionandsocial imaginationshave been discussed with respect to the situation ofunemployment in Australia. The study helps to compare the problem of unemployment andthe views related to it within the Australian society.Key points:Definition of social construction and social imaginationThe social construction theory is based upon the fact that human beings relate theirexperiences by developing models of the social world, which they share with the peercommunity through well constructed messaged and languages (Holmeset al.2014). In otherwords, the social constructions are shared assumptions developed by the society and mayvary depending upon cultural contexts (Danneferet al.2016). Social imagination relates thelife of an individual with the history of society. The social imagination develops a deeprooted understanding in an individual, which help them realize the relation between personalexperiences and larger society.Discussion of unemployment with relevance to the theoryThe two different social theories could be used for evaluating the concept regardingunemployment. As per the social construction theory unemployment arises due tounwillingness in people to work. As mentioned bySmyth(2016), unemployment is seen asan excuse found by lazy people to avoid work. Thus, it fails to look at the larger picture,which focuses upon the inner and much deep rooted problems such as lack of job satisfaction
