Description:

Often described as lsquo;the father of sociologyrsquo;, Emile Durkheim ranks among the most important and influential figures in modern social thought. This volume captures the enduring value and importance of Durkheimian sociology, focusing on the diverse points of view theoretical, substantive, methodological, and even normative which it uses to analyze modern life. The book includes selections from Durkheimrsquo;s best-known writings as well as less widely-known texts that explore the themes of modern sociology. This comprehensive volume ranges across the entire spectrum of sociological inquiry, as seen by Durkheim. It also includes secondary readings by social thinkers of today, connecting the classic writings of Durkheim to contemporary issues. A thorough introductory essay by a leading Durkheim scholar, as well as his first-rate organization of material, makes this the definitive collection by and about Durkheim and his work.
