I recently mused on Bruno Latour’s review of Durkheim’s 1912 text in social theory, The Elementary Forms of Religious Life. A summary of posts below.
- Why Bruno Latour is an interesting reader of texts: here.
- A critique of Durkheim’s sociological method in terms of the figuration of agencies: here.
- Durkheim’s psychology of the weak individual: here.
- The God of Durkheimian philosophy of religion begins to look more and more cheiropoiete (made by human hands): here.
- In spite of itself, Durkheim’s book begins to open up to analysis in terms of modes of existence: here.
Back to more analysis of [REL] soon, but I hope this was a useful detour!
