Compare and contrast

Compare and contrast Marx’s concept of alienation with Durkheim’s concept of anomie. Are their responses to the negative effects of modernity or modern capitalism essentially different?

Assignment Instructions:

1. Where relevant use a primary source – that is, read a section of Marx, Weber, Durkheim, Simmel, etc, rather than rely on articles that other people have written about these authors’ works and ideas.

2. Use good secondary source material, that is, academic books, book chapters and journal articles.

5. Search through the Griffith library on-line database to find relevant refereed journal articles. Any of the following will be useful: Proquest, Expanded Academic, Social Sciences Index, Jstor. Get some help from the library if you are having difficulty. There is an on-line tutorial that is highly recommended.
