    Solidarity is an awareness of shared interests, objectives, standards, and sympathies creating a psychological sense of unity of groups or classes. It refers to the ties in a society that bind people together as one. The term is generally employed in sociology and the other social sciences as well as in philosophy and bioethics. It is also a significant concept in Catholic social teaching.   In The Quest for Community (), The Sociological Tradition (), The Social Philosophers: Community and Conflict in Western Thought (), Twilight of Authority (), and in other works, community has been a prime concern. “By community,” Nisbet writes, “I mean something that goes far beyond mere local community.

    Émile Durkheim contributed a paper, read in his absence, to a meeting in of the newly founded Sociological Society (Becquemont, ). However, his British career had much stronger roots in anthropology. A seminal point came in when his nephew, Marcel Mauss, visited England to meet key writers on religion such as James Frazer and to acquaint them with the launch of the Année. Seeking the Durkheim inside the real world of Jews in France rather than the imagined Jewishness inside Durkheim himself, Strenski adopts a Durkheimian approach to understanding Durkheim's thought. In so doing he shows for the first time that Durkheim's sociology (especially his sociology of religion) took form in relation to the Jewish.
