Summary and Info
In Professional Ethics and Civic Morals, Emile Durkheim outlines his theory of morality and social rights which would continue to dominate his work throughout the course of his life. Including his much-neglected theory of the state as a moral institution as well as his critique of anomie and egoistic individualism, this book proves to be crucial to an understanding of Durkheim's sociology. The new preface by Bryan Turner places Durkheim's work in its intellectual and historical contexts, and illustrates the relevance of his theories to present day debates on the state, society, and moral regulations.
