3. Course contents *

Students learn to re- and deconstruct fundamental and complex sociological concepts and situate them within a larger theoretical (paradigmatical) context; they learn to estimate their explanatory potential (as well as limits), and they learn to use concepts heuristically in order to generate new meaningful interpretations, and this in different sociological domains.
