In the early days of his intellectual career, Durkheim was not concerned specifically with "sociology", but intended to study scientifically "moral phenomena" with a "physical conduct"; a failed project as is evidenced by the writing of his last unfinished work: "Morality". This work reflects the paradox of a writer who dreams of founding a science of morals, and who actually participated in the institutional foundation of sociology. Today rereading articles dealing with Durkheim's concept of morality seems to have a double interest: reintegrate moral facts as objects of sociological understanding of the foundations and challenges of the Durkheimian approach.
