Teaching Durkheim

Robert Alun Jones

Oxford University Press

In a variety of different subject areas — for example, sociology, history, and most recently religious studies — Durkheim has been a central focus in this book's author's teaching for more than thirty years. As a graduate student during the late sixties, the book's author was introduced to Thomas Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions (1962), which contained radical ideas about the history of ideas. Since then, his approach to teaching intellectual history has remained largely the same — that is, historicist, nominalist, and neopragmatist — albeit with minor adjustments along the way. Since this progression defines so much of what he does in the present, this chapter takes a brief look at the past.

Keywords:   sociology theory, teaching, Thomas Kuhn, George W. Stocking Jr, Quentin Skinner
