Cover of the French edition of The Rules of Sociological Method In The Rules of Sociological MethodDurkheim expressed his will to establish a method that would guarantee sociology's truly scientific character.
One of the questions raised by the author concerns the objectivity of the sociologist: According to Durkheim, observation must be as impartial and impersonal as possible, even though a "perfectly objective observation" in this sense may never be attained.
A social fact must always be studied according to its relation with other social facts, never according to the individual who studies it. Sociology should therefore privilege comparison rather than the study of singular independent facts.
Along with Herbert Spencerhe was one of the first people to explain the existence and quality of different parts of a society by reference to what function they served in maintaining the quotidian i. He also agreed with Spencer's organic analogycomparing society to a living organism.
Social fact A social fact is every way of acting, fixed or not, capable of exercising on the individual an external constraint; or again, every way of acting which is general throughout a given society, while at the same time existing in its own right independent of its individual manifestations.
The determining cause of a social fact must be sought among the antecedent social facts and not among the states of the individual consciousness. Suicide, like other immaterial social facts, exists independently of the will of an individual, cannot be eliminated, and is as influential — coercive — as physical laws such as gravity.
In The Division of Labour in SocietyDurkheim attempted to answer the question of what holds the society together. It can be termed the collective or common consciousness.
Thus very far from there being the antagonism between the individual and society which is often claimed, moral individualism, the cult of the individual, is in fact the product of society itself.
It is society that instituted it and made of man the god whose servant it is. He believed that crime is "bound up with the fundamental conditions of all social life " and serves a social function. He further stated that "the authority which the moral conscience enjoys must not be excessive; otherwise, no-one would dare to criticize it, and it would too easily congeal into an immutable form.
To make progress, individual originality must be able to express itself Suicide book In SuicideDurkheim explores the differing suicide rates among Protestants and Catholics, arguing that stronger social control among Catholics results in lower suicide rates.
According to Durkheim, Catholic society has normal levels of integration while Protestant society has low levels. Overall, Durkheim treated suicide as a social factexplaining variations in its rate on a macro level, considering society-scale phenomena such as lack of connections between people group attachment and lack of regulations of behavior, rather than individuals' feelings and motivations.
Durkheim believed that suicide was an instance of social deviance. Social deviance being any transgression of socially established norms. He created a normative theory of suicide focusing on the conditions of group life. The four different types of suicide that he proposed are egoistic, altruistic, anomic, and fatalistic.
He began by plotting social regulation on the x-axis of his chart, and social integration on the y-axis. Egoistic suicide corresponds to a low level of social integration. On the other hand, too much social integration would be altruistic suicide.
