Question description

Sociologists Emile Durkheim and Robert Merton studied a concept of self-alienation which can be described as a person's lack of cohesion with society, usually triggered by a crisis, causing an individual to turn to selfish and solitary interests without regard or concern for society as a whole. This concept is known as Anomie or Strain Theory. Merton's Strain Theory and Durkheim's Anomie are so closely related that the terms are used interchangeably and in relation to one another regularly.

Write a 2-page paper in which you analyze the concept of Anomie and its four types of human responses.
