Introduced into sociology by Emile Durkheim in his study Suicide (1897), anomie also refers to the psychological condition : of rootlessness, futility, anxiety, and amorality : afflicting individuals who live under such conditions. The importance of anomie as a cause of deviant behavior received further elaboration by Robert K. Merton

    Margaret Evans
    One could easily make the statement that Robert K. Merton was destined to become a sociologist. Almost from the beginning of his academic career Merton was interested in sociology and society’s effect on individuals. However, it could be argued that Merton’s most influential work was his theory of anomie. Anomie is a well-known theory within the discipline of criminology. Merton first published the theory in 1938 in an article titled “Social Structure and Anomie” (Hunt, 1961:59). It was this work that catapulted Merton into the sociological spotlight in which he has forever remained. This paper serves as a glimpse into the life of one of the most influential theorists in the 20 th century. It begins with a historical perspective highlighting Merton’s early days and education, it is then followed by a summary of his original theory, its subsequent revisions, expansions, criticisms and popularity at the turn of the century. Pfohl (1984:262) suggests that Merton’s childhood played an important role in shaping the direction of his future studies. Robert Merton was born in 1910 in Philadelphia to immigrant parents (Hunt, 1961:54). He lived in a slum throughout his childhood, however described it with fondness.

    Anomie and Strain Theory
    By Karen Michelle Collins Strain is the pressure on disadvantaged minority groups and the lower urban populous to take advantage of any effective available means to income and success that they can find even if these means are illegal (Akers, 2000, p. 144). In his 1897, publication, Suicide , Durkheim classified strain into two basic categories: social processes and personal experiences. These in turn produced two general types of strain: structural and individual. Social processes create the environment necessary for the evolvement of structural strain and personal experiences cause individual strain. Structural strain applies to members of society who determine their needs based on the ideals of society and are in a constant struggle to meet those expectations. Individual strain is the personally created stress applied by the individual while searching for a means of meeting their needs that are defined by their personal expectations that they hold of themselves (O’Connor, 2003). According to General Strain Theory, as aspirations increase and expectations decline, delinquency and the amount of deviant acts that occur increases in effect to these changes Merton recognized certain expectations created by the two general types of strain and identified five specific “modes of adaptation” to these strains (Akers, 2000, p. 144). Within the social psychology field, Robert Agnew identified three more major sources of strain in addition to those defined by Durkheim and Merton (Akers, 2000, p. 159).

Educated in France and Germany, Durkheim taught social science at the Univ. of Bordeaux and the Sorbonne. His view that the methods of natural science can be applied to the study of society was influenced by the positivist philosophy of Auguste Comte . Durkheim held that the collective mind of society was the source of religion and morality and that the common values developed in society, particularly in primitive societies, are the cohesive bonds of social order. In more complex societies, he suggests, the division of labor makes for cohesiveness, but the loss of commonly held values leads to social instability and disorientation of the individual. Durkheim studied suicide to show the importance of anomie, the loss of morale that accompanies decline in social identity. To support his theories he drew extensively on anthropological and statistical materials. His important works include The Division of Labor in Society (1893, tr. 1933)

    KEY QUESTIONS: Do people with more education and more prestigious jobs commit fewer crimes? Do people with strong social attachments (e.g., family, church) commit fewer crimes? KEY CONCEPTS: deviance, anomie, control theory, street crime, white-collar crime SOURCE OF DATA: General Social Survey We tend to associate crime with poor, minority-group neighborhoods. Given this association, Merton's argument has great intuitive appeal. However, it has not stood up well to the test of empirical confirmation. The argument implies an inverse relationship between social class and crime-that is, the higher the social class standing of the individual (as indicated, say, by his or her annual income), the lower the probability that the individual is a criminal. In studies of street crime (muggings, robberies, assaults, murders), the relationship can be confirmed; but when crime is defined more broadly, to include white-collar and business crimes, and when crime is measured by indicators other than official police reports (e.g., by self-report), the relationship is weak and inconsistent. Merton's theory of crime and deviance has become known as "anomie theory" in sociological jargon. He adopted the concept of "anomie" from Durkheim's writings (e.g., see his Suicide: A Study in Sociology. NY: Free Press, 1951 [org. 1897]). Anomie means being without norms or in a state of normative confusion; it can be used to characterize individuals, groups, or societies. Whereas Merton viewed anomie as arising from blocked opportunity, Durkheim saw it more as a product of the weakening of the quality and quantity of social ties-which may be caused by rapid social change, divorce, and other threats to the solidarity of the groups to which individuals belong.

[T]he field that I work in, and since I have been in it for so long and since I have trained a lot of the people in it, I know practically everybody in the world who is working in it. I am also on the editorial board of a number of journals, so in a lot of cases I see things before they are even in print. In my case I probably make very good usage of both of those things. I am in correspondence with a lot of people and they tell me what they are doing, just because I know them... and I go to meetings, to quite a few. This is where I meet my colleagues and we talk. I probably am almost never in the situation where I am having to do a search in an area where I don't know anything about the field. I may never. (Engineering professor of 40 years)

He was also the founder of the first journal devoted to social science, the Année Sociologique. Durkheim was born in Epinal, France. He was concerned primarily with what he perceived to be the breakdown of social norms and the increasingly impersonality of social life. Incidentally, in developing explanations of these phenomena, Durkheim is credited with attempting the first scientific approach to social phenomena, coining the sociological term social fact to describe distinct units of social information.

    SIGMUND FREUD'The Libido's Attachment to Objects' TS 729-733 Libido is the means by which the sexual instinct achieves expression. According to Freud, human sexual life, or the 'libido function' goes through a series of successive phases before it is mature (when the body is ready to reproduce). Before this point, sexual life is composed of independent activities which seek 'organ pleasure' (729). the theory of libido and narcissism:
    Sexual instincts are more closely connected to the psychic condition of anxiety than the ego (self-preservative) instincts are(730). Narcissism is a psychic condition that occurs when the libido (typically attached to certain objects in order to gain some satisfaction from them) abandons its objects and sets the ego in their place (self love). Under normal conditions, the ego-libido can transform itself into object libido without difficulty and can subsequently be reabsorbed into the ego (731). Freud calls Narcissism the 'libidinal complement of egoism.' Egoism represents the non-sexual interests of the person concerned, whereas Narcissism involves the satisfaction of libidinal needs. When the ego completely gives itself over to a sexual object it gives its narcissism to the object as well as its altruism (the antithesis of egoism) (731). To provide a partial explanation for the causes of narcissistic neuroses such as dementia praecox (schizophrenia), Freud claims that the object libido should be able to transform itself into the ego libido. However, libido remains libido and is never transformed into egoistic interests.
