Sociology Wright Integration

CC Sociology Wright Integration & Improvement upon Both Marx & Weber Discussion

Cuyamaca College

Question Description


Many see Wright  as a synthesis of Marx and Weber. In your opinion, describe why one might see Weber as an improvement on Marx, and Wright as an integration and improvement upon both Marx and Weber. What does Weber seem to “get” that Marx does not? What is Wright able to take from both Marx and Weber to produce some ideas that are even better at describing and explaining how class works today? Make careful comparisons of key elements of this synthesis. By key elements, I mean the key concepts for each theorist. Some of the concepts might “go away” as we move from one theorist to another. Other concepts might seem to just show up in a slightly different form as we move from one theory to another.
