Summary and Info
One hundred years after the publication of the great sociological treatise,The Elementary Forms of Religious Life, this new volume shows how aptly Durkheim's theories still resonate with the study of contemporary and historical religious societies. This volume applies the Durkheimian model to multiple cases, probing its resilience, wondering where it might be tweaked, and asking which aspects have best stood the test of time. A dialogue between theory and ethnography, the book shows how Durkheimian sociology has become a mainstay of social thought and theory, pointing to multiple ways in which Durkheim's great work on religion remains relevant to thinking about culture. After a century of cumulative critique, the capacity of Durkheimian theory to be of use to the study of religion in all its permutations remains unparalleled.
