374 editions published between 1012 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 4,737 WorldCat member 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.

Primitive classification by Émile Durkheim( Book )

74 editions published between 1063 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,530 WorldCat member 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

63 editions published between 1958 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,171 WorldCat member 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
Selected writings by Émile Durkheim( Book )

35 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in English and held by 1,120 WorldCat member 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
The elementary forms of religious life by Émile Durkheim( Book )

30 editions published between 1915 and 2008 in English and held by 1,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Emile Durkheim (1858-1917), founder of the French school of sociology, produced an astonishing array of books and articles. He wrote both empirical studies and abstract treatises, most famously in his books on suicide and on the division of labor. But his last and greatest book, on a topic of utmost importance, is far less well known in the English-speaking world. Les formes élémentaires de la vie religieuse, published in 1912, received a hasty translation in 1915 that has remained, until now, the only English version available. In this now-classic work, Durkheim analyzes religion into its most fundamental beliefs and rites, including: sacredness, the soul, spirits, and gods; asceticism, sacrifice, communion, and mourning. Through an examination of the world these elements constitute, he is able to argue that religion originates in social life and in the most fundamental capacities of human intellect. His analysis is a model of rich comparison, analytic clarity, and open-minded inquiry. The 1915 translation, by Joseph Ward Swain, was first published in the United States by The Free Press in 1954. At long last, sociologist and religious scholar Karen Fields offers a much-needed new translation, with an illuminating introduction, that will restore Durkheim's work to its original brilliance and gain the respect accorded the very best translations of other key works by this author. At the end of our century, as so many people ask fundamental questions about the sacred, and as social science itself faces a methodological crisis of confidence, there can be no better source of answers, as well as models of analysis, than Durkheim's text."--Jacket
