SOC 101Final Exam Prompt This is a take-home exam. Your exam should fit the following format: double space, size 12 font, Times New Roman, 1 inch margins. The whole exam should not exceed six pages. Please provide specific citations in ASA format, parenthetical or footnotes. 1) Why were racial dynamics central to the development of American capitalism even after abolition?35 points; recommended 2 pagesKeywords: over-exploitation; status; dictatorship of labor; caste system; surplus labor reservoir; wages of whitenessYou need to use at least four of these words.Include at least three page citations.Discuss Du Bois only. 2) What allows human beings to act in ways that conflict with their individual interests?65 points; recommended 4 pagesKeywords: effervescence; negative cult; positive cult; sacred; profane; respect; moral influence; idealization; mechanical solidarityYou need to use at least seven of these words.Include at least four page citations.Discuss Durkheim only.***There is no single correct answer to either of these questions, but that does not mean you can argue anything. Your argument needs to be based on the texts, even if you are critical of the arguments developed by Du Bois or Durkheim.In terms of your conceptual discussion, you are not restricted to the keywords provided above. You can use any concept from Du Bois or Durkheim if you are able to demonstrate its relevance to the questions.You can quote the texts, but avoid extensive quotations (i.e. do not exceed 25 words).***Further clarification of the Durkheim question: Ignorance, coercion, lack of intelligence, the deadweight of tradition, and a host of other negative factors could cause individuals to abandon self-interested action. However, Durkheim draws attention to socially smart ways of going beyond one’s private interests. As a result of certain actions, individuals are “elevated” when they behave in socially responsible ways. The prompt asks you discuss how such moral elevation is possible. (Nevertheless, notice that some negative factors, such as penal law, also facilitate such positive behavior).You should mostly focus on The Elementary Forms of Religious Life for this question, but you would need to bring in some discussion of The Division of Labor in Society for a thorough answer.
