SOC 351 Modernism, Postmodernism, and Society




Sociological tradition argues that empirical social science can be used as a tool to change society for the better. "Postmodern" social theories emerged in the 1970s to criticize these mainstream assumptions, about rational science, revolutionary politics, and the "grand narrative" of progress. The debate continues, and this course will provide an overview of the social theories involved and the social changes that provide the context for these theories.
