Durkheim's Mechanical and Organic Solidarity
In this paper I will attempt to describe Durkheim's Mechanical and Organic solidarity. Furthermore, I will also apply his definitions of organic solidarity to the institution I chose which was marriage.
This is the informal blog spot for Mike Levien's section of Sociology 101B. For the rest of the semester, we'll use this blog to clarify the work(s) of Durkheim, Weber, Foucault, de Beauvoir, MacKinnon, and Collins. Feel free to endlessly post, and don't forget: Theory Rocks!
