Section Information for Fall 2018
Examining major figures and ideas in the history of sociological theory, this course provides an introduction to the central issues of the "classical" period of sociology and places them in their historical context. The readings for this course are almost exclusively from European white males, since they are the source of the tradition, as it is currently perceived. We will read mostly primary materials, but should gain some basis for developing a critique and building upon central interpretations of classical theory. We will also discuss the ways in which major issues and methodologies of the period inform current sociological research and theory construction.
Enrollment is limited to students with a major in Sociology.
