Emile Durkheim

Zur Bestimmung der französischen Soziologie in Deutschland

Im letzten Viertel des 19. Jahrhunderts entsteht ein neues Krisenbewusstsein der entwickelten Gesellschaften, die einen raschen sozialen Wandel durchlaufen. Gesellschaftstheoretische Entwürfe werden im Namen einer neuen Wissenschaft ausformuliert, für die sich die Bezeichnung "Soziologie" rasch durchsetzt. Neben die ältere Statistik tritt sozialwissenschaftliche Forschung, die der theoretischen Anleitung bedarf. Für René König hat vor allem der die empirische Forschung anleitende Entwurf Emile Durkheims paradigmatische Bedeutung für die Entwicklung einer humanistischen Zielen zustrebenden Gesellschaft, so dass sich König immer wieder an diesem Entwurf einer an Tatsachen orientierten Soziologie mit theoretischem Anspruch und moralischem Profil orientiert hat. In diesem Band werden Königs Schriften zu Durkheim und zur französischen Soziologie versammelt. Zusätzlich wird sein reiches Schaffen an Diskussionsbeiträgen und Rezensionen sichtbar gemacht.

Émile Durkheim, whose writings still exert a great influence over sociological thought, has often been called the father of the sociology of education. He lectured extensively on the subject, and was convinced of its necessary place in social theory. But his work cannot be fully understood unless it is realized that he had an overriding concern form morals. He saw the relationship between morals and education as almost that of theory to practice, yet he never wrote a systematic work on the subject of morals, although for some time he planned such a book and managed just before he died in 1917 to write the opening introduction. This collection of Durkheim's work on morals and education brings together many items translated into English for the first time. A wide selection of articles, reviews and discussions has been included in this book, covering such subjects as, defining morals, the science of morality, moral facts, relativism, the relation of science to morality; and in education, problems of definition, childhood, sex education, Rousseau's 'Emile', teaching secular morality and the effectiveness of moral doctrines. The book also included an introduction to each of the two sections, as well as bibliographies which deal with Durkheim's own works on morals and education, together with those covering references to his writing on these subjects written by others.

Individuals make decisions but they do not do so in a social vacuum. The goods they buy are frequently status-symbols in a zero-sum game which some will win and some must lose. Their consumption of commodities is subject to the constraint that what one can do, all cannot. The pressure of coalitions and interest groups, the self- interest of politicians and bureaucrats may all work against a solution being found for some of the most urgent social and economic problems of our times. These problems form the centrepiece of the economic approach to social interaction that has been pioneered by Anthony Downs, Mancur Olson and Fred Hirsch. This book seeks to examine and evaluate their important theories of collective action.

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 on sociological and philsophical matters and offer an excellent guide to Durkheim for students of both disciplines.
