Durkheim is commonly cited as the principal architect of modern social science. He didn't engage in direct fieldwork but gathered information from anthropologists and explorers. His book Le Suicide is regarded as the first to make a methodological case study of an aspect of society, and shaped sociological thought as we know it today.
