Abstract

The paper explores Durkheim’s different notions of rationality, aims to formulate a Durkheimian theory of social integration, which should be both unitary and compatible with a particular version of RCT, and to this end refers to the whole Durkheimian work. To pursue these theoretical goals, it recalls Durkheim’s fundamental distinction between an individual and social state of consciousness, which may be related to two distinct conceptions of rationality as may be found in RCT. The paper explores, furthermore, the societal preconditions and consequences which characterize, according to Durkheim, the one and the other state of consciousness, especially insofar as solidary rules and norms are concerned. A Durkheimian theory of social integration is then formulated, and its relationship with some unresolved issues in RCT discussed.
