    Please explain/interpret ONE of the following two passages:Durkheim, Rules of Sociological Method, Chapter 1, p. 52:Here, then, is a category of facts which present very special characteristics: they consist of manners of acting, thinking and feeling external to the individual, which are invested with a coercive power by virtue of which they exercise control over him. Consequently, since they consist of representations and actions, they cannot be confused with organic phenomena, nor with psychical phenomena, which have no existence save in and through the individual consciousness. Thus they constitute a new species and to them must be exclusively assigned the term social. Du Bois, “The Study of the Negro Problems,” pp. 16-17.Any attempt to give it a double aim, to make social reform the immediate instead of the mediate object of a search for truth, will inevitably tend to defeat both objects. The frequent alliance of sociological research with various panaceas and particular schemes of reform, hasresutled in closely connecting social investigation with a good deal of groundless assumption and humbug in the popular mind. There will be at first some difficulty in bringing the Souther people, both black and white, to conceive of an earnest, careful study of the Negro problem whihc has not back of it some scheme of race amalgamation, political jobbery, or deportation to Africa.
