All three main sociologist writers Karl Marx, Max Weber and Emile Durkheim offer different perspectives on religion and how important it is to society. Some of the theorists chose to have a positive view whilst others argue the unimportance of religion.
Compare Marx’s view of social stratification with that of Weber. Use ethnographic examples to illustrate your argument. Social stratification is the hierarchal arrangement of individuals into the division of social class, groups, power, wealth and status in the society.
