Revised for the first time in over thirty years, this edition of Emile Durkheims masterful work on the nature and scope of sociology is updated with a new introduction and improved translation by leading scholar Steven Lukes that puts Durkheims work into context for the twenty-first century reader.

The Rules of Sociological Method represents Emile Durkheims manifesto for sociology. He argues forcefully for the objective, scientific, and methodological underpinnings of sociology as a discipline and establishes guiding principles for future research.

The substantial new introduction by leading Durkheim scholar Steven Lukes explains and sets into context Durkheims arguments. Lukes examines the still-controversial debates about The Rules of Sociological Methods six chapters and explains their relevance to present-day sociology. The edition also includes Durkheims subsequent thoughts on method in the form of articles, debates with scholars from other disciplines, and letters. The original translation has been revised and reworked in order to make Durkheims arguments clearer and easier to read.

This is an essential resource for students and scholars hoping to deepen their understanding of one of the pioneering voices in modern sociology and twentieth-century social thought.
