Publicação póstumo dos artigos : Representações individuais e representações coletivas (1898) : Determinação do Fato Moral (1906) : Respostas às objeções (1906) : Juízos de valor e Juízos da Realidade (1911). Émile Durkeim (1858-1917), sociólogo e filósofo francês, com seu pensamento positivista e coletivista contribuiu para o desenvolvimento da sociologia francesa. A escola sociológica, da qual ele fazia parte afasta-se da filosofia da história e passa a explicar todos os fatos da vida humana como resultado da ação das forças sociais. Sua tese principal De la division du travail social (1893) demonstrou que o desenvolvimento do indivíduo tem relação de dependência com o da sociedade. Defendeu seus princípios nas Règles de la méthode sociologique (1984). Em Le Suicide, étude de sociologie (1897), provou que as causas que levam alguém a querer se matar são de natureza sociológica e não individual.

Hemingway, Ernest, 1899-1961. A moveable feast.
Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway's most beloved works. Since Hemingway's personal papers were released in 1979, scholars have examined and debated the changes made to the text before publication. Now this new special restored edition presents the original manuscript as the author prepared it to be published. Featuring a personal foreword by Patrick Hemingway, Ernest's sole surviving son, and an introduction by the editor and grandson of the author, Seán Hemingway, this new edition also includes a number of unfinished, never-before-published Paris sketches revealing experiences that Hemingway had with his son Jack and his first wife, Hadley. Also included are irreverent portraits of other luminaries, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ford Madox Ford, and insightful recollections of his own early experiments with his craft. Sure to excite critics and readers alike, the restored edition of A Moveable Feast brilliantly evokes the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the unbridled creativity and enthusiasm that Hemingway himself experienced. In the world of letters it is a unique insight into a great literary generation, by one of the best American writers of the twentieth century.
