Article

David Émile Durkheim was a founding figure of sociology in France. His conceptual development of the “division of labour” (1893) remains key to a sociological understanding of modernity; in social terms, the highly-divided “organic” solidarity of modern nations and industrial society stood against the simplified “mechanical” solidarity of traditional communities.
