Summary and Info
Durkheim recognized that Montesquieu Rousseilu had laid down principles of sociology long before that had a name. With his characteristic blend of reason and fervor, he enlarged upon these forerunners to create the fundamental ideas of modern sociology. As Henri Peyre points out in the foreword, this book is an example how the best minds of any age can serve each other.
