Explaining Social Deviance by Paul Root Wolpe

Explaining Social Deviance

by Paul Root Wolpe

Title Details

Audio Original
Running Time
7.5 Hrs.


This course examines the complex topic of deviance and how major sociological theories have attempted to both define it and understand its role in both historical and modern society.

By examining a variety of theories from classical demonism to constructionism, these lectures provide a framework for understanding how religion, science, popular culture, power relations, and personal and collective values influence how a society will define deviance at any given point in time.

You see how the application of those definitions has a direct impact on other areas of social life, including the mental health profession, systems of deterrence, the judicial system, and the arts.
