Research Guide for Sociology Capstone


You have arrived at the course research guide for Sociology 401.  Welcome.

"We are the victims of an illusion which leads us to believe we have ourselves produced what has been imposed upon us externally" (Durkheim 1895).  

"It is through the illusion of freedom from social determinants...that social determinants win the freedom to exercise their full power.  And so, paradoxically, sociology frees us by freeing us from the illusion of freedom" (Bourdieu 1990).
