This multi-section program explains the role of sociological theory, distinguishes between structure and action, and sheds light on three major perspectives in sociology-societies as organic structures, societies as economic structures, and societies as social action-by looking at their origins and key ideas and then showing how they can be applied. The video concludes by using a case study on the medicalization of life problems in contemporary societies as an opportunity to consider how Durkheimian, Marxist, and interactionist theories might explain that phenomenon.
