Three Cheers

Durkheim, in one fell stroke, has managed to negate my thesis entirely.

Whenever a social phenomenon is directly explained by a psychological phenomenon, we may be sure that the explanation is false. (Les Règles de méthode sociologique, Paris: Alcan, 1901, 128)

Wonderful, I tell you.
