Travis Edwards Dr. Hemp SOC 301 February 26, 2014 Discussion Question The evolution of Durkheim is evident through his works from the sociological world. We see and witness the discoveries and interpretations that he’s done throughout his time. His perspective on suicides in different societies shows insight on how it takes effect in a sociological view. In the discussion article, readers see how changes in society can affect the occurrence of suicide. Nina Lakhani, author of The Independent, provides statistics and facts on the increase of suicide rates in England. Between 2008 and 2010, the suicide rate jumped from 12,000 to 13,000 showing a 1,000 more than anticipated increase. The question that we need to explain and justify is why this occurred in a sociological standpoint? The men of England seem to be accounted for 85% of those extra deaths due to the fall of the economy. England started to encounter a recession in their society in 2008 which left many people of that community jobless and homeless. With these drastic changes in their economy, the numbers of suicides seem to go up every year reflecting the England community. Durkheim brings forth different suicide terms that reflect different types of suicide analogies. These suicide terms include Altruistic, Egoistic, fatalistic, and anomic which all carry a different meaning for different suicidal societies.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
