This course covers some influential ways of thinking sociologically that are not captured by sociology's holy trinity. The course is organized by different traditions of sociological thought, with the hope that by outlining the ways in which ideas are interconnected in an intellectual arena it would be easier to trace influences and common themes. The course covers American and Continental (mostly German and French) sociological theorizing, most of it done in the 20th century, some of which still being crafted today.
