Summary/Abstract: Émile Durkheim's project of founding institutional sociology has a moral purpose: to encourage the obedience of social order in terms of moral crisis of the time. In this article, we follow Durkheim's efforts to identify new sources of morality and to clarify the necessary ethics of (re)building social structures. Moral vocation of sociology is emerging as Durkheim forwards in research on the evolution of social laws. In building his vision, Durkheim reported his works continuously to his predecessors and contemporaries, as demonstrated in this paper.
