To change society, or participate effectively in it, understanding how society works is essential. Social theory enables a critical understanding of social inequality, difference and change. Social theory guides social research and makes it intelligible within broader frameworks of understanding. This course charts classical attempts to formulate universal and synthetic social theory and more recent forms of situated, partial and reflexive theories. Accordingly, this course introduces students to significant thinkers and perspectives in classical and contemporary social theory.
