Annotation:It is obvious that all societies, from simple hunting bands to the complex industrial societies or post-industrial societies in which we live, must produce the basic goods and services their members depend upon. All societies have an economy in the sense of mechanisms which permit the production and circulation of goods and services. However, the principles which underpin these processes of production and circulation vary from society to society. Based on this prediction the content of the course is to clarify the basic aspects and concepts related to industrial and post-industrial societies, including the history of capitalism, different types of production and the results changes in the production systém bring for society. Students will be encouraged to understand the basic mechanisms and functions of work in industrial societies and to discuss changes related to deindustrialization phenomena. The content of the course will be completed with concrete examples based on social practice. This class is held in English.
