9780029079805: EMILE DURKHEIMS CONTRIBUTIONS TO L ANNE SOCIOLOGIQUE

For fifteen years, Emile Durkheim worked on the journal L'Annee Sociologique--selecting, editing, writing, shaping the goals and methods of the "French School" of sociology. Now, for the first time, Durkheim's own contributions to L'Annee are available in English. Classified and explained by Durkheim scholar Yash Nandan, this useful collection clarifies: the role of "L'Annee Sociologique" in the development of scientific sociology; the position of "L'Annee" in the body of Durkheim's own work and the development of Durkheim's ideas; the importance and function of Durkheim's categories of sociological data; Durkheim's view of contemporaries, including Simmel, Westermarck, Tarde, Glotz, and Steinmetz; the exchange of ideas between historians and the "L'Annee" group; and the reasons for "L'Annee's" reputation as a unique publication in the history of sociology.

Professor Nandan has organized this material according to Durkheim's own classification system, with major sections on the concepts and methodologies of general, juridic, and moral sociology, criminal sociology, and the statistics on morals. Subdivisions treat issues in law, suicide, social, political, and domestic organization, juridic and moral systems, the social contexts of crime, the sociology of knowledge, political sociology, social history, and historical sociology.

These reviews, notices, and introductory sections by a major figure in intellectual history represent more than a decade of effort to define and clarify a new form of scientific investigation. Together, they offer a suggestive new picture of Durkheim as "Scholarch" of the "French School" and master of a whole school of social thought.
