The main subject of the book: analysis of the simplest known religion, to determine the elementary forms of religious life. Why they are easier to arrive at and explain through primitive religions. Secondary subject: origin of the fundamental notions or categories of thought. Reasons for believing their orgin to be religious and consequently social. How a means of regenerating the theory of knowledge can be seen from this point of view.
"Karen Fields has given us a splendid new translation of the greatest work of sociology ever written, one we will not be embarrassed to assign to our students. In addition she has written a brilliant and profound introduction. The publication of this translation is an occasion for general celebration, for a veritable 'collective effervescence.'
-- Robert N. Bellah "Co-author of "Habits of the Heart, " and editor of "Emile Durkheim on Morality and Society"
"This superb new translation finally allows non-French speaking American readers fully to appreciate Durkheim's genius. It is a labor of love for which all scholars must be grateful."
--Lewis A. Coser
