Description - Debating Durkheim by Hermino Martins

Leading International scholars are bought together in Debating Durkheim to discuss controversial issues in the work of this increasingly important founding father of sociology. The subjects covered relate to Durkheim's Jewish background and its influence on his life and thought; to a positive reinterpretation of Durkheim's study of primitive thought in terms of social classification; an attempt to shed new light on his book on methodology, The Rules, which has been much criticised; a philosophical and sympathetic analysis of the notion of the social; a discussion of Durkheim's sociology of morals based on a study of social facts; a careful consideration of the problems of Durkheim's references to state, nation and patriotism; and finally, an application of The Rules to data relating to first names and raising the issue of social imitation. As these essays will show, Durkheim raises basic issues which must be examined if contemporary society is to understood. William Pickering has devoted much of his academic life to the study of Durkheim.
