Syllabus
Prerequisites:
Target skills and knowledge:: Students will learn how to use the theories, concepts and categories of classical social theory to critically analyze contemporary social phenomena and problems
Course unit contents: The course is designed as an introduction to three classical European social theorists: Karl Marx, Émile Durkheim and Max Weber from an historical and critical perspective
Planned learning activities: The course is designed as an introduction to three classical European social theorists: Karl Marx, Émile Durkheim and Max Weber. We will first survey alternative histories and rationales of canon formation in sociology. In the following weeks, each theorist will be approached according to a modular scheme: after a brief biographical introduction, aimed at setting the various thinkers within their cultural and historical contexts, we will review their major concepts using examples and recent research as illustrations. Among the themes that we will touch: the rise of capitalism, social solidarity, conflict and stratification, authory and power, religion and the sacred.
Textbooks: http://www.scform.unipd.it:8080/~m.bortolini/storiapd_13.html
Teaching methods: The course is designed as a reading-intensive lecture class. Each session will be divided in two parts, with a short break in between. Students will be involved in discussions through various questions which will be used to introduce and explain the main issues of each session.
Assessment criteria: A written, in-class exam. Rules and examples are to be found on the following webpage (in Italian):
