History of Social Thought

This course explores the ways in which social change in the 19th and 20th centuries gave rise to the intellectual responses that would form the basis of the social theory that informs the contemporary academic fields of sociology and anthropology. The works of major social theorists are considered in order to reveal such central concepts as social class and social stratification; power, authority and institutions; and social change.
