Abstract

A concept that originated with Max Weber, social closure depicts multiple sources of social privilege, strategies of social exclusion, and counterstrategies of usurpation. Social closure broadly belongs to theories of social conflict and stratification. Its originality consists in demonstrating that the ownership of means of production (as in Marxist theory) is only one basis of structured and purposive inequality.
