Max Weber , also a conflict theorist, agreed with Marx that social stratification causes social conflict. Unlike Marx, he portrays social stratification as a multidimensional ranking rather than a hierarchy of two clearly-defined classes. Weber saw three dimensions of social stratification in terms of a continuum. Social class for Weber included power and prestige in addition to property or wealth. Today, sociologists use the term socioeconomic status (SES) to refer to this ranking based on various dimensions of social inequality.
