Most widely held works by Émile Durkheim
The elementary forms of the religious life by Émile Durkheim( Book )
375 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 5,372 libraries worldwide
In this book, the author sets himself the task of discovering the enduring source of human social identity. He investigates what he considered to be the simplest form of documented religion - totemism among the Aborigines of Australia. For Durkheim, studying Aboriginal religion was a way 'to yield an understanding of the religious nature of man, by showing us an essential and permanent aspect of humanity'. The need and capacity of men and women to relate to one another socially lies at the heart of his exploration, in which religion embodies the beliefs that shape our moral universe. This book has been applauded and debated by sociologists, anthropologists, ethnographers, philosophers, and theologians, and continues to speak to new generations about the intriguing origin and nature of religion and society
The rules of sociological method by Émile Durkheim( Book )
580 editions published between 1895 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 5,270 libraries worldwide
Revised for the first time in over thirty years, this edition of Emile Durkheim's masterful work on the nature and scope of sociology is updated with a new introduction and improved translation by leading scholar Steven Lukes that puts Durkheim's work into context for the twenty-first century reader. The Rules of Sociological Method represents Emile Durkheim's manifesto for sociology. He argues forcefully for the objective, scientific, and methodological underpinnings of sociology as a discipline and establishes guiding principles for future research. The substantial new introduction by leading Durkheim scholar Steven Lukes explains and sets into context Durkheim's arguments. Lukes examines the still-controversial debates about The Rules of Sociological Method's six chapters and explains their relevance to present-day sociology. The edition also includes Durkheim's subsequent thoughts on method in the form of articles, debates with scholars from other disciplines, and letters. The original translation has been revised and reworked in order to make Durkheim's arguments clearer and easier to read. This is an essential resource for students and scholars hoping to deepen their understanding of one of the pioneering voices in modern sociology and twentieth-century social thought
The division of labor in society by Émile Durkheim( Book )
340 editions published between 1012 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 4,659 libraries worldwide
In this momentous challenge to the economic theories of Adam Smith and Karl Marx, Emile Durkheim presents a visionary reconception of the social structures for production and allocation that are the cornerstones of capitalism. He asks how individuality can be retained within the capitalist system. He argues that class conflict is not inherent in a capitalistic society as Marx contended, but that the unfettered growth of state power would lead to the extinction of individuality. He suggests that only in a free society that promotes voluntary bonds between its members can individuality prosper

First published in English in 1953, this volume represents a collection of three essays written by seminal sociologist and philsopher Emile Durkheim in which he puts forward the thesis that society is both a dynamic system and the seat of moral life. Each essay stands alone, but their connecting thread is the dialectic demonstration that a phenomenon, be a sociological or psychological one, is relatively independent of its matrix. The essays provide a valuable insight into Durkeheimian thought

Socialism and Saint-Simon (Le socialisme) by Émile Durkheim( Book )
135 editions published between 1928 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 1,896 libraries worldwide
This famous study of the development of socialism, but the greatest of French sociologists, continues to be a rich source of insight into both socialist thought and Durkheim's theories. This important and influential work treats socialism in its most dynamic sense: as a social and moral philosophy, a way of life and thought. It provides a useful perspective on the nature of socialist thought before Lenin, carefully defining the differences between communism and socialism. This first English translation of Le Socialisme reveals Saint-Simon's profound influence upon the author's thinking Durkheim devotes a major part of the book to an examination of the doctrines of this early nineteenth-century socialist, the common ancestor of such notable theorists as Comte, Marx, and the author himself
Primitive classification by Émile Durkheim( Book )
65 editions published between 1063 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,541 libraries worldwide
"Durkheim and Mauss claim that the individual mind is incapable of classification, and they seek the origin of 'classificatory function' in society. On the basis of an intensive examination of forms and principles of symbolic classification reported from the Australian aborigines, the Zuñi and traditional China, they try to establish a formal correspondence between social and symbolic classification. From this they argue that the mode of classification is determined by the form of society, and that the notions of space, time, hierarchy, number, class and other such cognitive categories are products of society."--Back cover
Selected writings by Émile Durkheim( Book )
38 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in English and held by 1,240 libraries worldwide
This is the only collection of Durkheim's writings to draw upon the whole body of his work. Many of the texts in the book are here translated for the first time. Dr. Giddens takes his selections from a wide variety of sources and includes a number of items from untranslated writings in the Revue Philosophique, Année Sociologique and from L'évolution pedagogue en France. Selections from previously translated writings have been checked against the originals and amended or re-translated where necessary. Dr. Giddens arranges his selections thematically rather than chronologically. However, extracts from all phases of Durkheim's intellectual career are represented, giving the date of their first publication, which makes the evolution of his thought easily traceable. In his introduction Dr. Giddens discusses phases in the interpretation of Durkheim's thought, as well as the main themes in his work, with an analysis of the effects of his thinking on modern sociology. The book is for students at any level taking courses in sociology, social anthropology and social theory, for whom Durkheim is one of the major writers studied

Le suicide : étude de sociologie by Émile Durkheim( Book )
174 editions published between 1897 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,092 libraries worldwide
"On se suicide généralement parce que les liens d'appartenance à un couple, une famille, une profession, une religion, une société, se sont défaits. Le suicide dépend moins des facteurs individuels que des facteurs sociaux. Telle est la thèse de cet ouvrage paru en 1897 et qui est probablement le plus connu d'Emile Durkheim. Sur cette base, l'auteur des Règles de la méthode sociologique élabore une typologie du suicide et indique une voie thérapeutique qui consiste à proposer des groupes d'appartenance substitutifs. Comme le montre Robert Neuburger dans sa préface, outre qu'elle peut, dans certains cas, s'avérer plus efficace qu'une thérapie individuelle, cette thérapie sociale offre aujourd'hui une alternative stimulante à l'explication du suicide par la dépression."--Book cover
