Sample text

The reputation of Durkheim in this country has suffered from the criticism of anthropologists, but that is because he was not an anthropologist; he made great contributions to anthropology, but it was not his métier. A student of sociology, with only a general academic training in French, I early sought the aid of Mr. Herbert A. Brodsky, who rendered great service in the preliminary stages of the translation of the two prefaces, the introduction, and the appendix, as well as the greater part of the second book.

I have often translated "la morale" as ethics, although sometimes as morality. I do not think Durkheim made any sharp distinction between them. At least the context never shows it. The picture of Durkheim which appears as the frontispiece in this volume is not a late one; it dates from about 1903. I should have preferred to have used a later one, but the photographs to which I had access and which were of a later date are either very bad and very difficult of reproduction, or else show Durkheim when he was in the throes of the illness which was to be fatal to him and consequently do not catch the spirit and vigor of a great mind.

AN ESTIMATE OF DURKHEIM'S WORK{2} I. THE PRESENT STATUS OF DURKHEIM'S WORK Rarely in the history of social thought has the best of a thinker's labor been as grossly misinterpreted as in the case of Emile Durkheim. And, in no other case is the misinterpretation to be laid at the door of the thinker himself. His reputation was established by the book here translated and Le Suicide, but his present place in social thought rests upon the views he expressed in other works,—views which, strange to say, were in contradiction to these two studies.
