Durkheim was a functionalist, and theorised that a holistic social narrative could be identified which would explain individual behaviour. He argued that, whilst society was made up of its members, it was greater than the sum of its parts, and was an external pressure that determined the behaviour of the individuals within it. At that time, suicide rates in Europe were rising, and so the causes of suicide were on the agenda. Since suicide is seen as an intrinsically personal and individual action, establishing it as having societal causes would be a strong defence for Durkheim’s functionalist perspective....   [tags: Sociology, Suicide, Durkheim, ] 1907 words

He shows the transition in the division of labour by contrasting ‘mechanical and organic solidarity’ (DeFleur and Ball-Rokeach, 1989: 156) where mechanical solidarity is seen a uniform and homogenous and organic solidarity is seen as individualistic and heterogeneous. Where there is mechanical solidarity ‘the members of a given population work out a set of beliefs, values, and other orientations to which they are deeply, commonly, and uniformly committed’ (ibid: 156); this is what Tonnies would describe as the Gemeinschaft where there were strong bonds and little space for individuality....   [tags: Sociology]
