3. What are the legacies of the classic traditions?
4. Within the contemporary sociological theory tradition as exemplified by Parsons and Davis & Moore, what are the concerns of functional theorists? How does this differ from the concerns of modern day conflict theorists like Dahrendorf and C. Wright Mills?
