An essential volume for anyone interested in the history of sociology, the development of sociological theory, or the history of women in the profession, this well-researched, compellingly argued book makes the case for the active and significant presence of women in the creation of sociology and social theory in its founding and classic periods. Further, Lengermann and Niebrugge explain how the women came to be erased from the history of sociology and identify the political and intellectual currents that now make their recovery both possible and important. The volume focuses on 15 women in eight chapters. Each chapter begins with a biographical sketch situating each thinkers ideas in a historical, social, and cultural context. Next, the authors analyze the womans theory, summarizing its underlying assumptions, explicating its major themes, and introducing key vocabulary. The chapter concludes with excerpts from the original texts of the women founders. All the theories discussed in this text share a moral commitment to the idea that sociology should and could work for the alleviation of socially produced human pain. The ethical duty of the sociologist is to seek sound scientific knowledge, to refuse to make the knowledge an end in itself, to speak for the disempowered, to advocate social reform, and to never forget that the appropriate relationship between researcher and subject is one of mutuality.

Most texts on classical social theory offer exhaustive coverage of every possible theorist, making it difficult to use the book in one semester. Capitalism and Classical Social Theory, Second Edition represents a departure from this approach by offering solid coverage of the classical triumvirate (Marx, Durkheim, and Weber), but also extending the canon strategically to include Simmel, four early female theorists, and the writings of Du Bois. The result is a manageable, but thorough, examination of the key classical theorists. The second edition has been updated throughout and includes two new chapters: one on Weber and rationalization, and one on Du Bois and his writings on race. A new concluding chapter links classical theory to current developments in capitalism during an age of austerity.

This book explores interpersonal situations in which weak or vulnerable people find themselves and the ways in which others help create, sustain, and eradicate such social dynamics. Vladimir Shlapentokh and Eric Beasley demonstrate that people can gain power over each other and then abuse this power because of unequal resource conditions. The authors define resources as the means necessary for satisfaction or achievement of needs or goals, such as wealth, physical strength, intellectual capacity and information, sexual attractiveness, and status. This volume is different from existing social science books on inequality and vulnerability, which address relations between people of different social positions, races, genders, ages, and places of residence confronting each other in political, economic, and cultural battles. This book focuses on people who become the victims of those whom they know personally—relatives, colleagues, neighbors. The authors argue that unequal resource distribution among members of social units is the main cause of conflict and ultimately creates situations where members of a social unit can abuse other members of the same unit.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Methodologie und Methoden, Note: Leistungsnachweis, Universität Duisburg-Essen (FB Soziologie), Veranstaltung: Einführung in die Soziologie, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Max Weber wird am 21. April 1864 in Erfurt geboren, sein Vater war ein nationalliberaler Politiker und später Abgeordneter. Diese nationalliberale Einstellung im Elternhaus prägte Weber entscheidend für sein späteres Leben. Weber studierte Jura, Nationalökonomie, Philosophie und Geschichte in verschiedenen Städten, seine Studienzeit wurde aber durch den Wehrdienst unterbrochen. Er promovierte mit Auszeichnung in Jura und die Habilitation folgte drei Jahre später in römischem Recht und Handelsrecht. Im Alter von 28 Jahren veröffentlicht Weber im Auftrag des Vereins für Sozialpolitik die Studie „Die Verhältnisse der Landarbeiter im ostelbischen Deutschland“, diese Schrift bestätigte seinen wissenschaftlichen Ruf. In dieser Schrift fordert Weber die Schließung der deutschen Grenzen gegen das Eindringen polnischer Arbeiter, da er der Meinung war, dass gesunde Bevölkerungsverhältnisse eine grundlegende Voraussetzung für eine jede Volkswirtschaft sind.1 Im Jahre 1893 heiratete Weber Marianne Schnitger, die spätere Frauenrechtlerin, eine der Hauptfiguren der Frauenbewegung. Ein Jahr später wird er zum Professor der Nationalökonomie an der Universität Freiburg/Breisgau berufen, in seiner dortigen Antrittsvorlesung legte er den Grundstein für sein später entwickeltes Werturteilsfreiheitpostulat der Wissenschaften. 1897 übernimmt Weber den Lehrstuhl für Nationalökonomie an der Heidelberger Universität, diesen muß er jedoch wegen einer Erkrankung aufgeben, insgesamt sieben Jahre kann er nur eingeschränkt arbeiten, in dieser Zeit unternimmt er mehrere Reisen durch Europa und Amerika. Erst nach dieser Zeit publiziert Weber wieder, er veröffentlicht unter anderem die Schriften „Die `Objektivität ́ sozialwissenschaftlicher und sozialpolitischer Erkenntnis“ sowie „Die protestantische Ethik und der Geist des Kapitalismus“. In der erstgenannten Schrift stellt Weber dar, dass es nicht Aufgabe einer Erfahrungswissenschaft sei, bindende Normen und Ideale zu ermitteln. In letzterer zeigt er auf wie die Religion das wirtschaftliche Verhalten prägt, die Protestanten haben laut Weber eher [...]
