1 <> Sociology 710: Intermediate Social Theory Fall 2004 W 2:00-4:30 17 Newcomb Hall Professor Kevin Fox Gotham, Ph.D. Sociology: 220 Newcomb Hall Office Hours: M and F, 4-5:00 and by appointment. Phone: Course Description Sociology 710 is an advanced social theory course for graduate students in sociology. The course will focus on five theorists who constitute part of the classical tradition of modern social theory: Karl Marx ( ), Max Weber ( ), Georg Simmel ( ), Emile Durkheim ( ), and George Herbert Mead ( ). We focus on these five theorists because they represent different approaches to understanding the transition from traditional to modern society, the nature of urbanization and industrialization, capitalism and social organization, democracy and individuality, and the dynamics of culture and social change. More important, their ideas and theories continue to have a major impact on sociologists understandings of the world. In short, this course is about the big ideas in sociology that have stood the test of time, that deal with major social issues that are far reaching in scope. <>There are at least two important issues to be aware of in a classical theory course. The first is the distinction (or lack of) between social theory and sociological theory. Generally, social theory is distinguished by its normative or critical stance, while sociological theory is primarily scientific and empirical. Despite this difference, the two concepts are often blurred in practice and tend to be used synonymously by sociologists. Second, there are many people included in the classical tradition. Broadly, classical theorists produced their work between 1789 and 1920; developed broad, general theories that included a theory of society, a theory of the relationship between the individual and social structure, a statement of epistemological and methodological assumptions, and an image of future social development. Classical theorists also wrote books and articles that were widely read and influential to a public audience. Finally, classical theorists helped institutionalize sociology as a distinct discipline. These criteria constitute our definition of classical social theory. Course Objectives The objectives of this course are to explain the contributions of the major theorists, explore the strengths and limitations of their theories, acquire an understanding of how social theory has developed historically, and develop the ability to critically evaluate theories. We will also seek to understand how theories are shaped by the historical context in which they are produced. More broadly, this course is about cultivating the intellectual skills to think theoretically. We will examine questions such as: What is society? What are individuals? What is theory and what good is it? How should we evaluate theory? How can we build on available theories to create new ones? A further objective is to provide the bases needed for achieving a high level of intellectual literacy within the field of sociology. Social theory is the backbone of the sociology discipline and all major substantive questions of sociological interest are directly related to theory. Without knowledge of theory, we have no possibility of making sense of what is going on around us.

3 Course Expectations and Requirements This course will generally follow a lecture format. The purpose of lectures is to provide necessary background material (e.g., historical, biographical, and conceptual), exegesis of the original texts, as well as commentary and critique. You are expected to attend each class and be prepared to discuss the assigned texts. You should have the material read on the date listed on the syllabus, but you should also be attentive to the pace of the class. Sometimes the class discussion may lag a bit behind the pace of the syllabus. In this case, you ought to review previously assigned material before class so that you are ready to follow and participate in the discussion. Your grade for this course will be determined by your performance on five papers and class participation. 1. You have five 8-12 page papers to write. The format and questions that you write on will be different for each paper. One purpose of the papers is for you to address the thinkers core problem and most important issue(s). You may be asked to compare and contrast the ideas of the different theorists. You may also be asked to connect the work of one or more classical theorist to some current event(s). You will receive the paper topic with question(s) about 2 weeks before the paper is due. The topic and questions presume familiarity with the theorists core ideas, problems, and arguments. The paper will require you to formulate your own arguments, supported by copious textual references with page citations. Papers will be in the 8-12 page range but you may go over (but not too much). Detailed instructions will accompany the paper topic and question(s). The due dates are listed on the syllabus, and late papers will be penalized. 2. Everyone is expected to participate through open discussion and questions, including sharing thoughts and ideas, observations, and assessments during class time. Regular, very high-quality participation can raise grade while poor participation can lower your grade. Unexcused absences will be seen as a lack of participation.
