  1. Implicit or explicit in the work of Marx, Durkheim, Weber, and Simmel are theories about how social solidarity/integration, the division of labor, and the human condition change as Western societies are transformed from pre-modern to modern/urban/industrial. Compare and contrast the work of these four sociologists with respect to the nature of social evolution and consider the aspects of social evolution enumerated above in your answer.
  2. Weber argues that certain elements of culture promoted behavior that laid the foundation for the emergence of modern Western capitalism. What are these elements and in what ways are they historically unique? How do they mold behavior in a way consistent with Weber’s vision of capitalism and lead to Weber’s ultimate conclusion about the fate of individuality and freedom under capitalism?
