Answer the following questions using concepts and lessons from class. The use of outside scholarly resources (articles, books, etc) will be rewarded but is not required. The recommended length per answer is 300 words. Keep use of the first-person voice to a minimum. Use APA style for all citations and Works cited (see APA Style Guide on Canvas).
1) Which of the the major theorists we have covered so far (Durkheim, Weber, and Marx) do you think is most useful for helping us understand the big issues and challenges of the present today? Provide at least one contemporary issue and one aspect of their theories in your answer.
2) Durkheim was one of the first to consider suicide as a result of collective, social factors. Do you think this is still valid today, in which it is primarily viewed as an individual, even biological problem? What might be done to reduce suicide by addressing social and cultural components?
