I’m working on a sociology writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
1)According to Durkheim, how is suicide is caused by social circumstances, and not primarily the result of individual motivations and intent? How can we determine this to be the case?
2) What are ‘social facts’ and what does it mean to say that they are ‘external’ to individuals and that they constrain our behaviors and actions? What are examples of social facts (other than suicide)?
