SOC 107 - Classical Sociological Theory


A critical and comparative survey of the major theorists of early sociology. This course emphasizes the first generation of sociologists, who sought to understand what we have come to call modernity. Beyond this central canon – represented by selected works of Marx, Durkheim, and Weber – the course introduces key theoretical perspectives and related analytical concepts that continue to inform many aspects of social life. Fulfills the social theory requirement for majors.
