  1. The process of defamiliarization
  2. Rationality and group solidarity among humans

The Durkheimian perspective is particularly interesting in its ground-breaking suggestions and novel ideas. Usually, when we consider the behavior of humans, especially humans living in "Western" society, we usually associate the behavior with actions that are "rational" and based on some sort of calculation. Whenever we think of economic calculations, social situations, and almost any other situations people come across in the course of their daily lives, we tend to believe that unless a person is mentally unstable, that person is "behaving rationally". Usually, the idea of behaving rationally is associated with being intelligent, doing things in a careful and calculated manner, and the idea of "self-interest" is a crucial element in all of this rational behavior.
