Example text

To further complicate matters, it has to be pointed out that Durkheim was not “anti-individualist”, as might be thought, simply on the basis of his opposition to methodological individualism. He was also opposed to the contrasting tradition of thought called “idealist holism”, which was basically conservative in orientation and saw the relationship between the individual and society as being that of the microcosm of the whole. In this view the individuals should be likeminded imprints of the social mould.

He did this by stating that the psychic element enters the evolutionary scale at the point where the function of reproduction necessitates a social act. Reproductive societies then evolve until they reach the large-scale level of the “herd”, at which point the psychological bond, the collective consciousness, becomes one of sympathy—likemindedness. The exchange of images (representations) produces an accumulation of knowledge which constitutes the intelligence of the society, and this collective consciousness takes precedence over any individual consciousness.

Gouldner, translated by Charlotte Sattler, New York, Collier Books, 1962, p. 32. † Attempts have been made to give a psycho-analytical explanation of Durkheim’s avoidance of political action and of his alleged turning from an early political problematic to a later religious problematic. Bernard Lacroix suggests that Durkheim’s reticence in the face of political action may have been due to a castration anxiety, and that his wish to change the world at a distance, through his writings, came from a desire for identification with his father.
