The course is organized around five theoretical traditions that
have profoundly shaped both modern sociology and, more
generally, contemporary social and political discourse:
rational choice, Durkheimian, Marxian, Weberian, and symbolic
interactionist theory.  Our focus will be on the original works
of the major theorists, but we will briefly consider a few
contemporary developments within each tradition.  The course
will emphasize ongoing written and oral student interaction
with these social theories.
