Functionalism is far less popular in sociology today than it was in the 1950's. Part of its decline in popularity is probably linked to the problems it had attempting to explain all the diversity and conflict that existed from the 1960s onwards. Criticism of functionalism had been widespread.

Criticisms Of FuntionalismFunctionalism is far less popular in sociology today than it was in the 1950's. Part of its decline in popularity is probably linked to the problems it had attempting to explain all the diversity and conflict that existed from the 1960s onwards. Criticism of functionalism had been widespread.0 Functionalism has been criticised for over-emphasising consensus and order, and failing to explain the social conflicts that characterise the modern world. We see very clear differences in behaviour all around us everyday, and there may be clear cultural differences present
