the 80th percentile isn’t the problemepopp

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 12:15:02 +0000

Okay, so I know three days is like a thousand years in internet time. But this Sunday Times op-ed, “Stop Pretending You’re Not Rich,” is still bugging me. The title is perfect guilty liberal upper-middle-class New-York-Times-reader clickbait. And sure enough, it was all over my social media feed. But I think the piece gets things […](image)

will sociology build the wall? on objectivity in social sciencejeffguhin

Sat, 10 Jun 2017 02:11:50 +0000

(The following is a guest post from Barış Büyükokutan) ASA President-Elect Mary Romero’s call to put sociology in the service of social justice by doing away with “false notions of ‘objectivity’” triggered a fierce debate about the public mission of sociology. In opposition to Romero’s position and Juan Pablo Pardo-Guerra’s defense of that position, I would […](image)

conflict vs. consensus theory: another bogus teaching distinctionfabiorojas

Thu, 08 Jun 2017 00:02:47 +0000

In a lot of old textbooks, and a few newer ones as well, you get this argument that social theories can be divided up into theories of conflict vs. theories of consensus. Marx is a conflict guy because his theory revolves around class divisions. Durkheim is consensus guy because he talks about social solidarity. Sad! […](image)
