    sociologygeek, eh?

    Let me see what I can remember from A-Level...hmm, what are your views on Durkheim's functionalist paradigm of society? Or him more generally while we're at it? I find his work on suicide quite interesting and he did a lot to legitimise sociology within academia but I can't see I agree with him on much and I don't see the advantage in over-emphasizing quantitative research and a positivist epistemology as he did. Fair enough, he favoured a scientific method, but there is always room for ethnography and analysis in any of the social sciences and you can't get away from the irrationality of human motivation and action entirely. As a general point, I always find conflict models more interesting to study anyway though, so I'm probably a tad biased against him.

    Also, welcome!

    OMG another way to say "bullshit". I always thought those -ologies were jargon-filled hocus-pocus meant only to allow the academics to get more grant money. . .



    No, really, i DO believe in them, mostly.

    Anyway, welcome to our community. Jump in wherever you feel like, and become one of us.
