 +## Durkheim and Weber, two daimons on my shoulders ## 
 +
 +I like to think of Emile Durkheim and Max Weber as two little [[http://​classics.mit.edu/​Plato/​apology.html|daimon]]s who sit on each of my shoulders, each whispering different things in
 +my ears.
 +
 +* Durkheim looks at society as a totality.
 +
 +* Weber looks at society as something that develops out individual
 +patterns of action.
 +
 +* Durkheim says that patterns of action are social facts. That is why
 +they matter.
 +
 +* Weber says that social patterns and institutions form because social actions have a meaning to the
 +actor and to the society at large. Social institutions and structures are particualr ways of embodying all the things that people in society value. ​
