SOC232 Lec 1 - Jan 3 11:
Theory
Lemert: how humans/social beings making sense of the world around them, looking
at hidden aspects in parts of our everyday life
About principles of pertinence to everyday situation, ideas relevant to given
situation
Enlightenment: reasoning/rationality prevails
a lot of theory emerges during political structure, modern state, and law, shift from
traditional to modern
Weber: talks about modernity as transition to rationalism
Durkheim: division of labour
Marx: alienation
A lot of questioning of ideas because came from white men may not apply to
blacks, colonized whites, females
Theory arises from social disruption trying to figure out whats going on eg.
Economically
Classical theory (before 1920s) left behind in a sense and changed
Calling theory classical or modern means we have a connection with theorist
modern theory, trying to make sense of the modern world we are living in
Changing ideas about how state and economy should relate eg. what state should
or not do to stimulate economy? Communism work? Where? End of cold war = end of
history, lot of ideas and changes that pulls us together that theorist talks about
Key ideas to help with readings:
Whats the main point theorist trying to make?
What are the key passages/quotes in the text that underpin key principles? Will help
with paper and test

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
