The giants of the European traditions were Emile Durkheim, Karl Marx, and Max Weber. Durkheim viewed society as an entity larger than the sum of its parts (society sui generis). His work focused on how public rituals and belief systems created social solidarity, and on how a social system could be known through the discovery and analysis of social facts—those social patterns that are external to individuals. Karl Marx considered society to be shaped by economic forces and analyzed capitalism as a system of class relationships. Max Weber developed a multidimensional analysis of society, integrating political, economic, and cultural dimensions.
Review the following summary of Karl Marx sociological Ideas. (attach below)
Read section 1 of the Communist Manifesto (Links to an external site.). Some sociologists claim that sociology is a conversation with the ghost of Karl Marx. In other words, Marx is the point of departure for many sociologists and sociological ideas. Marx’s ideas are at the foundation of what is today the Conflict Theory. However, many sociologists have spent their career trying to demonstrate that Marx was wrong in his view of society and social change. You are challenged in this course to make your own mind regarding Marx and Marxism.
