Graphic Display Of Sociological Theories
Create a Venn Diagram or other graphical representation to illustrate the relationship between the foundational sociological theories of work. Be sure to include Marx and Weber as well as other foundation theorists to provide a comprehensive picture of the forces that impact work in current society. Add labels and a short narrative to explain the connections (differences and similarities) between the various theories, as noted through the use of visual indicators.
