The seminar provides a necessary foundation for graduate studies in sociology by analyzing and evaluating the writings of Marx, Weber, Durkheim, Freud, and other formative western European and U.S. thinkers and how these writings shape debates, dialogue, and advances in sociological research. This graduate seminar focuses on the sociology of several of its pre-1969 "founders," their conflicting political and intellectual endeavors, and their explanations about the complexity of modern life. It is one of required core graduate courses for M.A. students.
