Bad                     Good
Emile Durkheim
View all quotes from this author
Engrave this Quote Man's characteristic privilege is that the bond he accepts is not physical but moral; that is, social. He is governed not by a material environment brutally imposed on him, but by a conscience superior to his own, the superiority of which he feels. Because the greater, better part of his existence transcends the body, he escapes the body's yoke, but is subject to that of society.
-Emile Durkheim Tell a Friend
