About This Special Issue
Sociology scrambling to determine the conditions of the emergence of consumers of cultural goods and their taste and describe the various methods of appropriation and application of those cultural goods that are considered as art works at that particular part of era.

Whether ideas and artistic taste are merely a reflection of the economic and social conditions the same as what Marx and Bourdieu believe and in fact, basic structure is constructed by the economy, social and political conditions and artistic tastes are only the surface structures which are passively concerned with economic infrastructure, politics and society, or as Weber believes ideas determine the artistic tastes and in fact are cultural surface structure that specifies infrastructure.

Human being through understanding the beauty inspired by nature and through imitating natural shapes and songs and the reflection of these works, created the art which is one of the important factors to express emotion and beauty and reflected in different forms. Music, poetry and dance came into existence simultaneously with human and from that time he tried to show his internal interactions through the sound and through acquiring the weight of regular and various sounds of nature created music.

The present proposal attempts to invite all researchers to investigate theoretical contrast through analyzing relationship between culture and society, in the context of the relationship between Music, poetry and dance with social conditions.
