Classical Sociological Theory Summary

Classical Sociological Theory by C Calhoun

A world-class introduction to the historical and continuing impact of classical theory on sociological debate

The latest edition of Classical Sociological Theory offers students a definitive guide to the theoretical foundations of sociology and the continuing impact of the ideas explored by early theorists, including Marx, Durkheim, Weber, Mead, Simmel, Freud, Du Bois, Adorno, Marcuse, Parsons, and Merton. The prestigious editors have integrated several readings on the most influential theories arising out of the Enlightenment era and the work of de Tocqueville.

Readers are introduced to seminal works in classical sociological theory by way of editorial introductions that lend historical and intellectual perspective to the included readings. The readings themselves have been selected based on their combinations of theoretical sophistication and accessibility. From analyses of self and society to examinations of critical theory and structural-functional analysis, Classical Sociological Theory remains the gold standard in classical theory readers.

The Fourth Edition of this widely taught book includes:

  • Selections that trace the history of classical sociological theory, from its undisciplined roots to its modern influence on contemporary sociological debate
  • Readings describing the pre-history of sociology, including ideas from the Enlightenment and de Tocqueville
  • Editorial introductions that place selected works firmly in their intellectual, philosophical, and historical contexts for the benefit of the student
  • A distinguished and scholarly team of editors with a wide and deep range of expertise

Perfect for undergraduate and graduate students of social and sociological theory, Classical Sociological Theory is also a thought-provoking resource ideal for use in courses taught in human geography, anthropology, criminology, and urban studies programs.
