Empirical Sociology: Structure and Change
Addresses developments and debates about the role and character of empirical sociology. Attention is paid to how sociologists have explored social relations, especially social structure and social change. The course deals with social realist concerns of epistemology and methodology; it engages with two traditions - one with its origins in Marx’s Capital, the other drawn from Mill’s The Sociological Imagination.
