Description - Emile Durkheim by Stephen P. Turner

International scholarship over the last twenty years has produced a new understanding of Emile Durkheim as a thinker. This book is the first to present the reader with an overview of the best of this scholarship and to provide a taste of research much of which is not available in English elsewhere. Although the essays included reflect a wide range of concerns and styles of thought from the cream of the Durkheim community, there is a startling coherence in the image they present. Durkheim was, from his first reviews to his last written work, a moralist and this collection reconnects the two parts of the man that other writings have generally separated: the institutionalizer of sociologist and the moralist. Emile Durkheim: Sociologist and Moralist provides us with a new Durkheim hitherto known only to specialists, that of a utilizer of the insights of sociology for the purpose of intervention into moral development.
