Durkheim also noted that a loss in the societys cohesion led to adverse behaviors such as an increase in the rates of suicide. This led to Durkheim conducting a study on the characters of individuals who committed suicide and concluded that a cohesive society controls people change their views on religion and gender. There has also been the aspect of diffusion whereby the population is absorbing a significant number of new goods which are being manufactured. Work cited Durkheim Emile.
