Type of paper: Critical Thinking
In the beginning paragraph of this chapter Lamert (2010) advances the impression that while Durkheim‘s theory of anomie denotes a state of disorder, strategies linking modern division of labor structures seemed to emerge in response to annomie. I am in total agreement with this concept and line of thinking.
Further, Lamert (2010) actually points readers towards understanding the way social order in contemporary patterns of task distribution can eliminate the anomie posited by Durkheim. This is wonderful! Precisely, I embrace interpretations of the concepts ‘anomie’ and ‘modern division of labor’ because they can be interpreted as antonyms in a socio-linguistic context.
