Course Description: This course compares the major European and American sociological theories from Comte, Durkheim, and Max Weber to Parsons. It is structured around the major theoretical traditions that constitute the discipline of sociology and traces developments over time within each school of thought: conflict theory, the functionalist tradition, micro-interactionist perspectives, and contemporary integrated theories. The course examines how the insights of social theory can be applied in everyday life as well as the post-modern critique of social theory and what sociology might learn from it. Topics include division of labor, forms of solidarity, anomie, and social rituals and symbols; capitalism, communist manifesto, false consciousness, and social class; bureaucracy, protestant ethic, and rationalization; governmentalities, disciplinary society, and docile body.
