This volume challenges prevailing understanding of the two great founders of sociological thought. In a detailed and systematic way the author demonstrates how Marx and Durkheim gradually developed the fundamental frameworks for sociological materialism and idealism. While most recent interpreters of Marx have placed alienation and subjectivity at the centre of his work, Professor Alexander suggests that it was the later Marx’s very emphasis on alienation that allowed him to avoid conceptualizing subjectivity altogether. In Durkheim’s case, by contrast, the author argues that such objectivist theorizing informed the early work alone, and he demonstrates that in his later writings Durkheim elaborated an idealist theory that used religious life as an analytical model for studying the institutions of secular society.

Durkheim and Women is the first book-length work to present a feminist analysis of the theoretical writings of Emile Durkheim. Through a close textual reading of Durkheim?s widely scattered statements about women, Jennifer M. Lehmann reconstructs a coherent Durkheimian theory of women. She places Durkheim squarely in the swirling modernist controversies of his time and the equally bedeviling postmodernist controversies of ours.

It is becoming more and more difficult to publish papers from international and world scientific meetings. The causes are partly financial; in addition the number of meetings held is so large that it is impossible to find the necessary time for the enormous amount of work involved in preparing and publishing these materials. Also the scientific and professional quality of these meetings is often poor as the same points of view as well as more or less the same papers, with only slight modifi cations, are usually presented. The educational system is also responsible since professionals are required to publish papers in order to get promoted in their pro fession and in their institutions. Overproduction of meetings and papers is often mentioned by many pro fessionals, but when we look at the professional activi ties of the critics of these meetings and papers, we can see that they also behave in the stereotypic way - they write papers, read them at congresses and publish in periodicals. The number of periodical publications of some medical branches - including psychiatry - is enor mous. In the light of such thoughts it seems opportune to evaluate the 8th World Congress of Social Psychiatry and the papers presented - the papers you are now holding in your hands. Although such an evaluation is a delicate and difficult task, I think it should be at least attempted in this Editorial.

Focusing on the work of Emile Durkheim and Georges Bataille, this dissertation explores the appeal in France from the late-nineteenth through the mid-twentieth century of the notion of ritual blood sacrifice for discussions of community formation and renewal. During this time period, and especially during the interwar years, interest in sacrifice spread from ethnographic and social scientific circles to the artistic and literary avant-garde, a process that allowed for some surprising and often paradoxical paths of influence. While Durkheim found in ritual sacrifice (which he associated with "primitive" societies) the active representation of mental processes that work to produce collective ideals and communal bonds, entailing for him that collective unity and rejuvenation within contemporary Western societies must occur through a specifically sacrificial---albeit symbolic, non-bloody---process, Bataille tended to draw a very different conclusion. Through an examination of monographs, essays, lectures, novels, notes, and correspondence, however, I demonstrate that Bataille, not widely known for his works of sociological analysis, adopted and adapted aspects of Durkheim's understanding of sacrifice. Indeed, despite his reputation as a conservative positivist---as a "watchdog" of the bourgeois republic---Durkheim's analysis of sacrifice contained elements that would prove fruitful for someone like Bataille who was very much opposed to the established order. I show that this influence was not confined to the period, short-lived as it was, when Bataille helped found, and formed the principal leader of, the College de Sociologie, which was explicitly inspired by Durkheimian sociology, but continued, and in fact was enhanced to some extent, in the years subsequent to the dissolution of the College. Though there are numerous and fundamental differences between Durkheim and Bataille, I argue that the affinities of their theories of sacrifice spring largely from a common concern, integral to these theories but producing very distinct effects, with social outsiders.

In der zeitgenössischen Soziologie und Theorie des Rechts ist bis auf den heutigen Tag die Normentheorie Emile Durkheims eher stiefmütterlich behandelt worden. Die vorliegende Untersuchung versucht, die bestehenden Defizite durch eine Neuinterpretation von Durkheims Theorie der Normen und des Rechtssystems zu beheben. Zu den Bestandteilen des Rechtssystems werden dabei nicht nur die Rechtsnormen gezählt, deren Struktur und Funktion einer Analyse unterzogen werden, sondern auch der Vertrag, der als rechtliche Regelform - unter Einschluss auch der nichtkontraktuellen Elemente - gewürdigt wird.

The works of Emile Durkheim have had an enormous influence on sociology. This book provides, first, a clearly written introduction to Durkheim's major works, looking at each of the major fields to which he contributed. Secondly, it examines the ways in which Durkheim has continued to provide inspiration in a variety of areas within sociology. It therefore focuses closely on live issues within the subject and shows the continuing relevance of Durkheim's work to issues of topical concern, such as the division of labour and class conflict, the state, race, education, law and deviance and religion. Thirdly, it provides an assessment of the interpretations of Durkheim as a 'radical' thinker, in contrast to the view of him as fundamentally conservative. It will provide a valuable introduction to students of one of sociology's founding fathers and will be of interest to those interested in sociology as a whole for its assessment of the contemporary relevance of Durkheim's thought for major issues.

Drawing upon both classical insights and more recent writings, Hearn provides a compelling account of social breakdown in the United States. The book examines the conditions most responsible for the deterioration of social institutions, notably the family, and of communitarian interdependencies, such as those that support neighborhoods. More specifically, Hearn analyzes the defining forces of liberal modernity--among them, especially, the market economy (favored by the political right) and the democratic welfare state (endorsed by the political left)--whose steady expansion has diminished the social contexts that nurture trust, mutuality, and a robust sense of both personal responsibility and social obligation. The originality of Hearn's book lies in the solutions he proposes, which differ from those rooted in what Hearn calls "the languages of modernity." Hearn advocates modes that would serve instead to renew solidarity and reclaim social virtue, a repertory of strategies that would answer Emile Durkheim's call for the creation of moral individualism. He assesses various approaches to revitalizing the social settings, the social institutions, and communitarian structures within which people become moral individuals capable of care about and taking responsibility for the fates of others. Readers of this book are invited to draw their own conclusions by relying in larger part on themselves as parents, neighbors, community members, and citizen-participants in a civil society in restoration. As the "American Journal of Sociology" notes, "the book succeeds in its goals, and it deserves to be widely read." "Frank Hearn" was professor of sociology at the State University of New York, College of Cortland, and the author of "Reason and Freedom in Sociological Thought" and "The Transformation of Industrial Organization."
