Ethics and the Sociology of MoralsBook - 1993
Emile Durkheim (1858-1917) was one of the founders of modern sociology. Ethics and the Sociology of Morals ( La science positive de la morale en Allemagne ) laid the foundation for Durkheim's future work. More than a review of current thought, it was a proclamation that ethics needed to be liberated from its philosophical bondage and developed as a distinct branch of sociology. Written when Durkheim was charting the course of his own research, it provides a unique key to the interpretation of his earlier work and presents a number of points of Durkheim's ethical theory which are of considerable interest in light of current ethical theory. This volume makes available in English a crucial essay by a master of social thought.
