Abstract

While Emile Durkheim is well known as an important theorist in the development of modern sociology, it is noted that few sociologists and even fewer educators recognize his significant contribution to the sociology of education. This paper provides a brief historical framework which, it is argued had a great influence upon Durkheim's thinking regarding the relationship of education to society. His major theories of education are discussed under three major groupings — education developing as a social process, education's function in the socialization of the young, and education in the development of morality. Durkheim's practical applications of sociological theory to education remain timely for today's educational process. Bien qu'Emile Durkheim soit connu comme un important théoricien de la sociologie moderne, peu de sociologues et mo̮íns d'éducateurs encore reconnaissent l'importance de sa contribut́ion à la sociologie de l'éducation. Cet article donne brièvement le cadre historique qui, selon l'auteur, a exercé une grande influence sur la pensée de Durkheim au sujet des rapports entre l'éducation et la société. Ses principales théories sur l'éducation sont commentées ici en trois grands chapitres: l'aspect social du développement de l'éducation — le rôle de l'éducation dans la socialisation de la jeunesse — le rôle de l'éducation dans le développement de la moralité. L'application à l'éducation des théories sociologiques de Durkheim reste valable dans l'évolution actuelle de l'éducation.
