Theodor W. Adorno Quotes about truth
#82071 Pierre Bourdieu

The point of my work is to show that culture and education aren't simply hobbies or minor influences. They are hugely important in the affirmation of differences between groups and social classes and in the reproduction of those differences. .

Pierre Bourdieu Quotes about education

Emile Durkheim Quotes about happiness
#128822 Emile Durkheim

Each victim of suicide gives his act a personal stamp which expresses his temperament, the special conditions in which he is involved, and which, consequently, cannot be explained by the social and general causes of the phenomenon. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about men
#128823 Emile Durkheim

The roles of art, morality, religion, political faith, science itself are not to repair organic exhaustion nor to provide sound functioning of the organs. All this supraphysical life is built and expanded not because of the demands of the cosmic environment but because of the demands of the social environment. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about life
#128824 Emile Durkheim

Each new generation is reared by its predecessor; the latter must therefore improve in order to improve its successor. The movement is circular. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about success
#128825 Emile Durkheim

A society whose members are united by the fact that they think in the same way in regard to the sacred world and its relations with the profane world, and by the fact that they translate these common ideas into common practices, is what is called a Church. In all history, we do not find a single religion without a Church. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about religion
#128826 Emile Durkheim

There is a collective as well as an individual humor inclining peoples to sadness or cheerfulness, making them see things in bright or somber lights. In fact, only society can pass a collective opinion on the value of human life; for this the individual is incompetent. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about humor
#128827 Emile Durkheim

Reality seems valueless by comparison with the dreams of fevered imaginations; reality is therefore abandoned. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about dreams
#128828 Emile Durkheim

Emile Durkheim Quotes about men
#128829 Emile Durkheim

Our whole social environment seems to us to be filled with forces which really exist only in our own minds. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about mind
#128830 Emile Durkheim

It is science, and not religion, which has taught men that things are complex and difficult to understand. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about religion
#128831 Emile Durkheim

If religion has given birth to all that is essential in society, it is because the idea of society is the soul of religion. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about religion
#128832 Emile Durkheim

Man seeks to learn, and man kills himself because of the loss of cohesion in his religious society; he does not kill himself because of his learning. It is certainly not the learning he acquires that disorganizes religion; but the desire for knowledge wakens because religion becomes disorganized. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about religion
#128833 Emile Durkheim

Men have been obliged to make for themselves a notion of what religion is, long before the science of religions started its methodical comparisons. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about religion
#128834 Emile Durkheim

From the physical point of view, a man is nothing more than a system of cells, or from the mental point of view, than a system of representations; in either case, he differs only in degree from animals. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about men
#128835 Emile Durkheim

Sadness does not inhere in things; it does not reach us from the world and through mere contemplation of the world. It is a product of our own thought. We create it out of whole cloth. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about world
#128836 Emile Durkheim

Faith is not uprooted by dialectic proof; it must already be deeply shaken by other causes to be unable to withstand the shock of argument. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about men
#128837 Emile Durkheim

By definition, sacred beings are separated beings. That which characterizes them is that there is a break of continuity between them and the profane beings. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about character
#128838 Emile Durkheim

It is inadmissible that systems of ideas like religions, which have held so considerable a place in history, and to which, in all times, men have come to receive the energy which they must have to live, should be made up of a tissue of illusions. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about religion
#128839 Emile Durkheim

There are two types of men: the great and the small. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about men
#128840 Emile Durkheim

One cannot long remain so absorbed in contemplation of emptiness without being increasingly attracted to it. In vain, one bestows on it the name of infinity; this does not change its nature. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about change

Emile Durkheim Quotes about time
#128842 Emile Durkheim

Emile Durkheim Quotes about belief
#128843 Emile Durkheim

The individual can maintain himself in a society definitely organized only through possessing an equally definite mental and moral constitution. This is what the neuropath lacks. His state of disturbance causes him to be constantly taken by surprise by circumstances. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about society
#128844 Emile Durkheim

The Christian conceives of his abode on Earth in no more delightful colors than the Jainist sectarian. He sees in it only a time of sad trial; he also thinks that his true country is not of this world. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about time
#128845 Emile Durkheim

A monomaniac is a sick person whose mentality is perfectly healthy in all respects but one; he has a single flaw, clearly localized. At times, for example, he has an unreasonable and absurd desire to drink or steal or use abusive language; but all his other acts and all his other thoughts are strictly correct. .

Emile Durkheim Quotes about time
#185820 Pierre Bourdieu

The point of my work is to show that culture and education arent simply hobbies or minor influences. They are hugely important in the affirmation of differences between groups and social classes and in the reproduction of those differences. .

Pierre Bourdieu Quotes about education
#199118 Talcott Parsons

Theory not only formulates what we know but also tells us what we want to know, that is, the questions to which an answer is needed. .

Talcott Parsons Quotes about questions
#202167 Georg Simmel

The deepest problems of modern life derive from the claim of the individual to preserve the autonomy and individuality of his existence in the face of overwhelming social forces, of historical heritage, of external culture, and of the technique of life. .

Georg Simmel Quotes about life
#204710 Max Weber

The modern view of criminal justice, broadly, is that public concern with morality or expediency decrees expiation for the violation of a norm; this concern finds expression in the infliction of punishment on the evil doer by agents of the state, the evil doer, however, enjoying the protection of a regular procedure. .

Max Weber Quotes about joy
#666817 Georg Simmel

Every superior personality, and every superior performance, has, for the average of mankind, something mysterious. .

Georg Simmel Quotes about man
#666818 Georg Simmel

For the division of labor demands from the individual an ever more one-sided accomplishment, and the greatest advance in a one-sided pursuit only too frequently means dearth to the personality of the individual. .

Georg Simmel Quotes about art
#666819 Georg Simmel

For the metropolis presents the peculiar conditions which are revealed to us as the opportunities and the stimuli for the development of both these ways of allocating roles to men. .

Georg Simmel Quotes about men
#666820 Georg Simmel

For this reason, strangers are not really conceived as individuals, but as strangers of a particular type: the element of distance is no less general in regard to them than the element of nearness. .

Georg Simmel Quotes about art
#666821 Georg Simmel

For, to be a stranger is naturally a very positive relation; it is a specific form of interaction. .

Georg Simmel Quotes about action
#666822 Georg Simmel

In order to accommodate to change and to the contrast of phenomena, the intellect does not require any shocks and inner upheavals; it is only through such upheavals that the more conservative mind could accommodate to the metropolitan rhythm of events. .

Georg Simmel Quotes about change
#666823 Georg Simmel

In the latter case life rests upon a thousand presuppositions which the individual can never trace back to their origins, and verify; but which he must accept upon faith and belief. .

Georg Simmel Quotes about life
#666824 Georg Simmel

Mans nature, originally good and common to all, should develop unhampered. .

Georg Simmel Quotes about nature
#666825 Georg Simmel

Modern culture is constantly growing more objective. Its tissues grow more and more out of impersonal energies, and absorb less and less the subjective entirety of the individual. .

Georg Simmel Quotes about culture
#666826 Georg Simmel

On the one hand, life is made infinitely easy for the personality in that stimulations, interests, uses of time and consciousness are offered to it from all sides. They carry the person as if in a stream, and one needs hardly to swim for oneself. .

Georg Simmel Quotes about life
#666827 Georg Simmel

Secrecy involves a tension which, at the moment of revelation, finds its release. .
