It seems that above questions provide the theorists with a critical perspective from which they view the dominant interpretations of social reality and the value presuppositions that inform them. The authors and schools categorized as contemporary social theoresies grounded in the earlier works of the classic tradition but present important departures. Functionalism of Kingsley Davis and Robert Merton; Wright Mills and Ralf Dahrendorf with their Conflict Theory, Peter Berger with his ‘everyday life’, Herbert Blumer with Symbolic Interaction, and Dorothy Smith with her ‘women’s experience’. They spoke on their own pulpit, and I am still here, keep my ear on them, I am not dozing however ….
Then, the critical theories and the post-modernists are engaged in intelectual battle in their attempts to refine and redefine the fundamental questions posed by those classical theorists. Herbert Marcuse told us about one-dimensional man, and the refinement of Jurgen Habermas on technical progress and our social life world. Not to mention, Michel Foucault who wrote on sexuality and the carceral, Lyotard who reported postmodern condition, and Richard Rorty deep insights. I see, there are thoughts to be reviewed in my minds. I think it’s okay to visit their lecture rooms one by one, I love it.
