1 Department of Sociology, Spring 2009 Instructor: Dan Lainer-Vos, phone: Office Hours: Monday 11:00-13:00, 348E KAP Class: Tuesday 4:00-6:50pm, Sociology Room, KAP (third floor) 510: Theories and Perspectives - Classical Sociological Theory This course provides an introduction to key classical sociological thinking. We will review the writings of Karl Marx, Émile Durkheim, Max Weber and a few of their prominent disciples. These thinkers, working in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, established sociology as an academic discipline. Living in a period of great economic, political, and social transformation, these thinkers attempted to understand the emerging new social order and the condition of life in modernity. The questions they raised, the problems they identified, and even some of their solutions still shape our understanding of society. The structure of the course follows the different approaches of Marx, Durkheim, and Weber. Marx s sociological theory is emancipatory. As such, it claims to speak in the name of certain oppressed groups (in Marx s case this group is the proletariat, but we will examine other examples, such as Marxist Feminist theory). This point of view is not just a matter of moral principle: Marx believed that society is best understood from the point of view of the oppressed. Moreover, he believed that properly understanding this point of view offers a key for social change. The role of sociology, from this perspective, is not just to understand society, but to fundamentally emancipate it from oppression hence their name. Durkheim attempted to establish sociology after the model of positivist natural sciences. Positivist theoreticians, including Durkheim, do not claim to speak in anybody s name. They believe their authority to speak derives from scientific expertise. Instead of linking themselves to different groups, they believed that the best view from which to understand society in from above. Only from this perspective, they believed, can objective sociological knowledge be accumulated. Durkehim did not believe in emancipation. To the extent that he was interested in social change, he sought reform rather than revolution. The role of sociology, from this perspective, is to positively apply scientific method toward discovering and describing the rules that govern societies hence the term positivism. Weber s sociological approach breaks away from both emancipatory and positivist thought. Weber s perspective can be described as critical theory. Unlike emanicipatory theoreticians, Weber does not claim to speak on behalf of any oppressed social group but he does not adopt the positivist point of view from above either. In fact, Weber and other critical theoreticians doubt the very possibility of an objective representation of society. They do not believe in neither emancipation (which they characterize as a dream which turned into a nightmare), nor in reform (which they characterize as the pragmatism of the 1

2 mouse on the turning wheel). Disillusioned with the promise of emancipation and positivism, Weber is deeply ambivalent about the role of sociological theory. This overly schematic description of the three main sociological approaches that will be studied in class hides more than reveals. What is society? What is it made of? What is the dominant relations in society? And how should societies be studied? During the semester, we will try to understand Marx, Durkheim and Weber s answers to these questions. Course Requirements and grading There will be a midterm and final writing assignments. The mid-term assignment will be worth 40% of your grade and the final assignment exam will be worth 50% of your grade.
