SOCI-202 Sociological Theory
Fall for 2008-2009
This course examines major theories of society exemplified in the work of sociological theorists. We will give special emphasis and at least half of the term to those classical theorists whose insights form the foundation of sociology: Marx, Weber, and Durkheim. In the latter part of the course we will survey and "map out" a variety of contemporary perspectives on society, including symbolic interactionism and its variants, structural-functionalism, conflict and exchange theories, neo-Marxisms and critical theory, and feminism. In addition, we will give some attention to the social and organizational contexts in which classical and contemporary theory have emerged.
