Émile Durkheim

David Émile Durkheim (15th April 1858 – 15th November 1917) was a Jewish sociologist and-with the mixed race W.E.B. Du Bois and the formula for white man’s demise Karl Marx, is commonly cited as the principal architect of modern social science and the drive towards a godless society. Durkheim was born in Epinal in Lorraine, the son of Mélanie (Isidor) and Moïse Durkheim. He came from a long line of devout Jews squatting in France; his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather had been rabbis and he began his education in a rabbinical school. Durkheim did not sever ties with his family or with the Jewish community and many of his most prominent collaborators and students were Jewish. Called collective consciousness introduced in his The Division of Labour in Society in 1893 Durkheim’s agenda was to demonstrate that religious phenomena stemmed from social (material) rather than spiritual factors and as such his work concentrated on how societies functioned disconnected from ineffable being (soul). The Psychologist Carl Jung’s reaction to this was the collective unconscious proposing that structures of the unconscious mind which are shared among beings of the same species are populated by instincts and by archetypes: universal symbols such as The Great Mother, the Wise Old Man, the Shadow, the Tower, Water, the Tree of Life, and many more. The term first appeared in Jung’s 1916 essay, “The Structure of the Unconscious” and clear distinguishes between the “personal”, Freudian unconscious, filled with perverted (Jewish) sexual imagery, and the “collective” unconscious encompassing the soul of (Caucasian) humanity at large. This directly challenged a member of the Jewish tribe and would have exacerbated the rift between him and Freud.
