Although Durkheim's original definition of social solidarity included both beliefs and practices, modern sociologists have empirically operationalized the concept in terms of only beliefs or only practices. It is suggested that the modern conceptualization of social solidarity is invalid because it does not allow the researcher to get close to empirical reality.
