HISTORICAL AND COMPARATIVE METHODS IN SOCIOLOGY (winter semester) 677  
 
  The course relates how History as an academic discipline was influenced by the positivism of the Natural Sciences and worked out an empirical method which was based on the critical analysis of the historical sources. In this way, History became a narrative science according to Leopold von Ranke, the great German Historian, who was only interested in “what was really happened”. This kind of History was criticized intensively by the “Annales” School which supported that historians should explain “how” and “why” facts happened than just narrate “what” happened. These were the circumstances which led to the transition from the political, diplomatic and military history to the economic and social one. Namely, the historians inaugurated the use of quantitative methods and the study of the structure instead of the inνindividual acts. In other words the History was removed from the Humanities and approached the Social Sciences. The course’s main topics are the problems of objectivity, causality, generalization and the protagonists of the historical facts. 
ECONOMY AND SOCIETY IN 19TH CENTURY GREECE (spring semester) 017
    The course refers to the transformation process of modern Greece from an agrarian to an urbanized society. It describes how the newly established Greek State was endeavoring to modernize the traditional society of the 19th century “from above” by setting up the appropriate institutions. Yet, the native mentality proved so strong that the bourgeois institutions failed to fulfill their purpose. The main topics of the course, in this context, are: a) the peasant property and the first land reform, the commercialization of the agricultural products and the raisin issue, the question of large estates in Attica, Fthiotis, Euboea, Thessaly, Arta and the second land reform, b) the industrialization process and the transformation of Piraeus to the “Greek Manchester” and c) the introduction of the steam engine to the commercial shipping and the development of the foreign trade by sea.
 CITY AND MODERNITY (spring semester) 148   
    The course introduces the urbanization process of European countries during the 19th century. The main issues concern: a) Social Theories about the modern city and the urban way of life and b) the causes and effects of urbanization process in the urban space. Therefore, the course focuses on questions such as the emergence of new forms of social relations between residents of big cities, the existence of an urban way of life and the division of labor between the industrial city and the countryside; the horizontal and vertical expansion of the city, the creation of the first suburbs, the development of the public transport, the forms of housing, the integration or the isolation of immigrants, the social inequalities and the social segregation.   
 THE FORMATION OF THE GREEK CITIES IN 19TH CENTURY (winter semester)  055  
    The course presents the urbanization process of the Greek territory during the 19th century. The main issues concern the causes and the effects of urbanization process in both the urban network and the urban space. The development of the urban network was determined by three factors: a) the highly centralized administrative system, b) the delayed construction of the road and railway network and c) the commercialization of agricultural products which formed the basis for the development of the Modern Greek economy and its transformation from subsistence into a market economy. A new form for the arrangement of the urban space was adopted; the Hippodamian city-planning system. Thus, the appearance of cities changed because their functions were organized according to the differentiation principle of land use. Athens, the seat of Administration, along with the city-ports of Patras and of Piraeus and Hermoupolis in Syros Island became the biggest urban centers almost till the end of the 19th century.
