What do you make of Karl Marx’s contributions to sociology? What perceptions of Marx have you been exposed to in your society, and how do those perceptions influence your views?
*** Please include at least at least 2 in-text citations ***Karl Marx (1818–1883) was a German philosopher and economist (Little, W. et al, 2014). Karl Marx was also coauthored of one of the most influential book called Communist Manifesto. His contributions to sociology clarifies the difference in society through income classes as he believed financial inequality is what causes social instability and conflicts. This is obvious in ourpresent days because we live in society where upper and lower classes exist. Along his theory of upper and lower classes, Marx developed a theory that draws attention to how economics, social interactions, employment, materials, living environment influence people’s beliefs, behaviors and actions. He also created and proposed the theory of critical sociology with the goal of not only studying as subject or describing society but using arduous investigations to change society.
