Theorist of Choice

The text, Sociology: Beyond Common Sense, describes many individuals who have contributed to our current view of sociology, including:

  • Auguste Comte
  • Emile Durkheim
  • Karl Marx
  • Max Webber
  • Harriet Martineau
  • Jane Addams
  • W.E.B. Dubois
  • Erving Goffman
  • George Herbert Mead
  • Robert Merton

From the list provided, identify one theorist whose work regarding society you found most interesting. Using the knowledge you have gained thus far in this course, write a paper that describes the theory or work aligned to the chosen theorist and provide three reasons why you chose this theorist. Use scholarly resources to support your thesis.

The paper must be three to four pages in length (excluding the title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style Ashford Writing Center Essay. You must use at least two scholarly resources (at least one of which must be found in the Ashford Library) other than the textbook to support your claims. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page.
