Karl Marx and Max Weber are two important sociologists that had different explanations  on what determines social class. Karl Marx concluded that social class depends on a single factor which was a person’s relationship to the means of production. Marx stated that distinctions  people make among themselves are superficial and this divides just two classes of people. The  capitalists and workers are the two classes and the means of production is what determines class  and as the capitalists grow wealthier, so do the hostilities. The only thing holding back a  revolution is false class consciousness. The only distinction that matters is whether a person is an owner or workers.  Max Weber was a critic of Marx and said property was a single part of social class and  stated that social class has three parts: property, power, and prestige. Both Marx and Weber  agreed that property is very important for social class but Weber says that ownership is not the  most significant aspect of property since managers can control means without actually owning  the property.  Weber expands and says that power is the ability to control others, even if they  resist. They both agreed that property was a major source for power but Weber says that prestige  could be turned into power such as celebrities turning into politicians. Prestige is the third  element and is Weber states that it’s derived from property and power, but can also be based on  other factors.  To sum up, Marx had one distinction, Property, and that was the only thing that  mattered along with one’s relationship to means of production while Weber has three  components for social class that includes power and prestige.  But both agree on the importance  of property and how it determines social class.
