Critical sociology

Jump to navigationJump to search

Critical sociologists (basically European in origin), like American radical sociologists, oppose what they feel are the dehumanizing aspects of capitalist institutions and also reject what they call the "bureaucratic collectivism" or "state capitalism" of the former Soviet Union, China, North Korea, Cuba, etc. Although critical sociology uses Marxism as its theoretical underpinning, it also recognizes that Marxism leaves many questions unanswered and seeks to remedy this by blending it with such bodies of theory as Freudianism, existentialism, phenomenology, etc.
