Natural Women, Cultured Men
A Feminist Perspective on Sociological TheoryBook - 1987
"Sydie unequivocally establishes how the idea that woman is to nature what man is to culture has been the singular theme underscoring each of the schools of sociological theory...Useful as a text in teaching social theory as well as feminist sociology, this work also brings us up-to-date on the questions confronting feminist theory in sociology today." Sociological Inquiry "An enlightening book by a sociological insider." Feminist Bookstore News "A timely book...instrumental in focusing the attention and work of feminist sociologists on Durkheim and Weber." Sex Roles Published for the first time in paperback, Rosalind Sydie's critically acclaimed study examines the work and thought of Durkheim, Weber, Marx, Engels, focusing on what these influential thinkers had to say about the nature of gender relationships. She brings to light assumptions at the foundation of classical social theory, and the effect that these assumptions have had on the perception of women.
