EL CONCEPTO DE SOCIALIZACIÓN Y LA ANTINOMIA INDIVIDUO/SOCIEDAD EN DURKHEIM

Abstract
English
Spanish
Studying the bond between individual and society in Durkheim’s work is especially pertinent for education sociology because of two reasons. First, because its analysis demands to refer to the notion of socialization, which constitutes the link between individual and society and implies a judgement on education. Second, because education sociology has permanently oscillated between both poles of the antinomy objectivism/ subjectivism, and examining the relation between man and society presumes clearing up the position the author took in connection to the aforementioned polarity. As a consequence of this, we introduce Durkheim’s ideas about sociological knowledge, social order and human nature. We then expose his ideas about the socializing function of education. Finally, we point out the way in which Durkheim “solves” the dichotomies present in his work and the role that his conception on education plays in this.
