This course presents a comparison of two theorists, Karl Marx and Max Weber, who have decisively influenced 20th-century social and political thought. Topics will include their views of history, society, religion, politics and the state; methods of social inquiry; the nature of power, authority, and rationality; and the possibilities of political action. Readings will include selections from the major works of Marx and Weber as well as Georg Lukacs, who was influenced by both.
