Les Règles de la méthode sociologique

Véritable discours de la méthode, Les Règles de la méthode sociologique, publiées en 1895, ont donné à la sociologie son statut de science humaine. La règle qui consiste à traiter les faits sociaux comme des choses permet à Durkheim de séparer, dans les comportements, ce qui relève de la contrainte sociale de ce qui tient de motivations individuelles. Cette distinction ent ...more

A very organized structure on how to look at society in order to understand it from a sociological standpoint.

"In thinking about the world of the senses each one of us colours it in his own way, and different people adapt themselves differently to an identical physical environment."
-Emile Durkheim

"One must systematically discard all preconceptions... [Feelings] are not due to some transcendental precognition of reality, but are the result of all kinds of disordered impressions and emotion accum

A seminal work in sociology (or more broadly, as Durkheim would prefer, in social science), this book details what a scientific approach to the study of societies ought to look like. Many of the rules the author sets out appear self-evident, even though a myriad of social scientists, students, and amateur thinkers today still fail to abide by them.

These rules are for the most part reasonably justified, from his conception of social facts as phenomena external to the individual, to the proper mea

Pretty much the founding text in the formation of sociology as a field, this book centers sociology within an academy that holds the scientific as the highest of disciplinary methods. Whether or not you agree, the language of legitimization is fascinating and, considering that the call to form a new discipline was a political act in 1895 France, tight.

Emile Durkheim gets a lot of well-deserved credit for legitimizing the field of sociology, but this book shows you the insane myopia he went through for that achievement. Durkheim desperately wanted sociology to be as much of a science as physics and biology, but he just couldn't accept the fact that sociology has no laboratory environment where contingent variables can be removed. When the only place you can observe your object of study (society) is the real world, then obviously a lot of thing ...more
Here Durkheim sees to establish sociology as a science that studies 1Esocial facts 1D. He argues the very naturalistic concept of viewing social facts as things, which can be subjected to rules, just as in natural sciences
1EA social fact is every way of acting, fixed or not, capable of exercising on the individual an external constraint; or again, every way of acting which is general throughout a given society, while at the same time existing in its own right independent of its individual manif

Shelves: science
Durkheim est un empiriste qui tente d’entraîner les autres sociologues à sa suite en critiquant l’idéalisme en science et en proposant une méthode rigoureuse afin de définir et observer l’objet d’étude, le « fait social », avec clarté et rigueur.
Si les qualités heuristiques de certains éléments de son argumentation sont discutables et elles comportent parfois quelques contradictions, je crois qu’il faut y trouver les signes d’une recherche intense d’un « noyau dur » qui ne pourra être remis en

Emile Durkheim is one of the big three of classical sociological theory (the other two being Marx and Weber) and I honestly hadn't read a great deal of his work before this year besides a few pages of suicide from an undergrad theory class. I get why Durkheim is still considered one of the founders of sociology but this book was an awful thing to slog through. 100 hundred years ago and translated from French does not equal a compelling read, especially when you have to give a half-hearted presen ...more

Os fatos sociais devem ser tratados como coisas'. Com esta afirmação polêmica Émile Durkheim orienta de modo decisivo uma disciplina que estava se formando e à qual esta obra, mais do que qualquer outra, dava fundamentos sólidos. Para Durkheim existe uma ruptura entre a psicologia e a sociologia como existe entre a biologia e as ciências físico-químicas. O ser coletivo possui uma natureza sui generis e a consciência coletiva é distinta da consciência individual.

Me encanta el tema y me parece un excelente libro, un gran autor que se esmera en ser objetivo y muy preciso (algo no siempre presente incluso en los mejores autores). Ademas del contenido de esta tan útil y prometedora ciencia que es la sociología, también le permite tener al lector una visión del proceso de construir la estructura de una tesis o, como lo que aquí hace y/o pretende, estructurar una nueva ciencia. Es de 1895 pero me parece que sigue vigente el contenido.
Pretty interesting (and at the same time soporific) stuff. I now know what a social fact is, and that they should not be analyzed according to individual practices but by analyzing related social facts. We are products of our society, and not the other way around. Now you know!

Durkheim es considerado un clásico dentro de la sociología, lo cual puede significar muchas cosas. Una de esas, por ejemplo, es que es una suerte de abuelo intocable que todavía balbucea algunas verdades frente a un auditorio que se encuentra en estado de somnolencia.

I read the Turkish translation of Durkheim's masterpiece. Interesting to know the rules of thought and science. As far as I know, Leninist philosophers tried adopt the materialism to determine the orientation of future physical and social sciences.

Es un manual para entender uno de los más importantes intentos de establecer el método sociológico, entender la base que es el hecho social. Un libro básico para entender la sociología.

A jornada épica de Durkheim para transformar a Sociologia em uma ciência imparcial e que objetiva fatos. Minha crítica sobre uma obra tão cheia de logros não é tão é tão importante quanto meu testemunho. Como estudante de Direito, percebi como uma leitura indispensável.
An interesting look at what defines a social fact.

كنت سمعت قبل قراءتي للكتاب أو بمعني أصح للمقال إن التأسيس الحقيقي لعلم الإجتماع بيبدأ عند إميل دوركايم ، و فعلاً أقدر أقول إن كتاب ( قواعد المنهج ) بالنسبة لعلم الإجتماع ما يقلش أهمية عن ( مقال في المنهج ) بالنسبة للفلسفة

ببساطة دوركايم وضع أمام عينيه هدف محدد ، هو وضع علم الإجتماع في أرض الإمبيريقية ، أراد وضعه في أرض الملاحظة مش في أرض التأمُل. يمكن السبب هو متابعته لنشأة علم النفس و الصعوبات اللي واجهتها نشأته بسبب سيطرة فرويد و مدرسة التحليل لفترة ، أو بمعني أصح مدرسة التأمل اللي عطلت علم ال

Much of Durkheim's work was concerned with how societies could maintain their integrity and coherence in modernity; an era in which traditional social and religious ties are no longer assumed, and in which new social institutions have come into being. His first major sociological work was The Division of Labor in Society (1893). In 1895, he published his Rules of the Sociological Method and set up ...more
