“Law and Classical Social Theory” surveys leading attempts to construct social theories of law and to use legal materials for social theorizing, during the period from the mid-eighteenth century to the early twentieth century. While many figures are read and treated, the theorists receiving most attention are: Maine, Marx, Durkheim and Weber. The seminar introduces leading approaches to the social understanding of law and legal change, and furnishes an opportunity for more advanced work on particular contributions to this field.
