Learning Objectives (What can the students expect to learn from their participation):

The course will introduce a number of different perspectives on the art of theorizing. By confronting different (classical and modern) theories students will achieve knowledge and experience which will help them in their future academic careers in
terms of theorizing and developing more coherent theoretical frameworks. Following from this the students will learn that any theoretical framework facilitates and constrains the character of methods. They will learn when a theory is empirical sensitive and how theory and method is tied together.
