About this Unit
In Spring 2020 this unit replaced by 102788 - Self and Society. This core theory unit for sociology majors introduces students to traditional and contemporary debates in social thought. The unit reviews sociological thought in the context of changing conceptions of the relation between the individual and society and the formation of the self. A number of theorists and theoretical areas are addressed, employing as the focal point of study or analysis what has been called middle range theory. This enables students to better grasp the relation between theory and application and to uncover competing theorists and ideas that may complement or be opposed to the positions argued in the unit.
