Chapter Summary

Classical sociology is constructed in an intellectual sphere marked by the three major categories of society, the state and the nation. When it deals with the domain of integration, the chapter examines three major registers which are those defined by Daniel Bell as the constituent elements of modernity: the social, the political and the institutions, and the cultural. In the history of social thought, the Durkheimian concept of integration is often associated with that of socialization. The question of the integration of cultural differences was discussed ever since the beginning of the 1960s, in several developed countries, especially with respect to the impact and the meaning of various culturally loaded types of mobilization such as regionalist movements or gender organizations. The framework of the nation-state in the consideration of migratory phenomena and cultural and religious differences, the more sensitive one is to the complexity of the real-life experiences of migrants.
