The Construction of Society & Cultural Norms
The religious tendency of navigating a complicated world according to Emile Durkheim
Summary: Society often appears static but, in reality, society is a conglomeration of history’s process of becoming which resulted in a variety of norms, patterns, and structures. Emile Durkheim claimed such a process was the result of society’s innate pursuit of the ideal. If true, we currently exist in this process and we might want to consider what it means to be a part of it.
