    Yeah the only thing that is a lot of effort is learning the sociologists + linkable case studies, the theories like Marxism / Functionalism etc. all come pretty naturally.

    How are you intending to link theories like Marxism/Functionalism into a socio as a science essay?

    Well the general idea is Marxists / Functionalists are positivists that believe sociology should be a science. That is why they tend to conduct their research using quantitative methods such as a statistics. Durkheim for example, one of the original functionalist sociologists saw sociology as a science, because hypothesis's can be tested and shown by statistics. You could predict something and find it has a trend that correlates with something else, for example his suicide study that showed economic depression lead to greater rates.


    On the other hand post modernist sociologists are interactionalists, they believe in social action and not science. Basically they believe things are individual in each case and cannot be predicted / proved by trends.
