Symbolic interactionism considers symbols used in life. Functionalism focuses on society's abiliity to remail intact through cohesion of the various segments. The conflict perspective deals with society and its competitive nature.

The major issue in the future for sociology would surely be the adaptation of hundreds of millions of peoples, coming from poor or over populated countries to Western Europe and North America. Don't forget that until 2050 Earth will reach 10 billion people and surely this people will be too small for all of us.
