SOC380.4 Theory of Sociology I

Taught in Spanish at the Universidad Diego Portales and may not be offered every semester. This course will study systematically the process of the formation of classical social theory, its main problems and fundamental conceptual core. It aims to delve into the different conceptions of what is meant by “theory” and “social” and to study in detail the role of social theory in the process of studying the constitution of the object of study and the generation of knowledge. This class will deepen in the basic tenets of the three fundamental classical social theorists: Marx, Weber and Durkheim. (UDP code: SOC 2111)
