What is sociological theory? How did sociological theory develop?
How can classic sociological theories from the 20th century help us
to understand the world today? This course answers these questions
by introducing students to the thought of Marx, Weber, Durkheim, and
other scholars whose thinking was foundational to the development of
sociology. We will examine the ways in which their classic ideas
still shape what and how sociologists study contemporary society.
