This volume explores Durkheim's place in modern educational thought at three different levels:
* Durkheim's ideas on education are analyzed and placed in the context of modern society
* current educational issues are explored using a Durkheimian framework
* Durkheim's thought is related to that of modern educational theorists to reveal his enduring influence
In discussing Durkheim's modern relevance, the contributors stress his desire to integrate the practical and theoretical aspects of education. They identify particular pertinence in his focus upon the moral base of education and his insistence upon the importance of the social and society.
