In Durkheim’s book The Rules of Sociological Method he explains his key concept of “social facts” and gives language and currency as examples of them. He devotes a whole book – Suicide – as his third example of such. This academic audiobook with sociology professor Garry Potter explains Durkheim's focus upon Suicide as the most counter-intuitive and difficult example to make his case for the sociological method. It discusses Durkeim's opinion that the most personal and individual act actually has a sociological causal component when one looks at suicide rates.
