Rules Of Sociological Method by Emile Durkheim

"Rules of Sociological Method" is a foundational text that outlines the principles and approaches necessary for the study of sociology. The book emphasizes the importance of treating social facts as things, which are external and coercive forces that can be studied objectively. The author argues for the necessity of establishing sociology as a scientific discipline with its own distinct methods and object of study, separate from psychology and philosophy. He advocates for the use of empirical data to understand social phenomena and introduces concepts such as the normal and the pathological to distinguish between typical and deviant social behaviors. This work is crucial for understanding the methodological framework that underpins sociological analysis and research.
