Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course the students will learn how to integrate analyses of historical events carried out by individual and collective actors with underlying social, ecopnomical and political structures. They will become familiar with a method of analysis, which tries to integrate a macro perspective (state and economy) with a micro perspective (psychological structures). They will be acquainted with a perspective, where the old debate between which role to ascribe to the individual on the one hand and society on the other can be resolved through a historical approach.
