This thesis aims to study the reception of Emile Durkheim's ideas and his disciples
(Paul Fauconnet, Marcel Mauss, Celestin Bouglé, etc.) in the Sociology chairs of the
Schools of Philosophy and Arts and Law and Social Sciences of the University of
Buenos Aires and the School of Law and Social Sciences of the University of Córdoba, in Argentina, and the School of Law and Social Sciences of the University
of the Republic in Uruguay. This study recognizes three periods of this reception: the first one covers the initial appearance of Durkheim in the Río de la Plata from 1895 to 1915, when the approach to this sociological school was mainly limited to The Rules of Sociological Method and, subsidiarily, The Division of Labour in Society. The second period comprises the years 1915-1933 when, after the fall of positivism due to the First World War, a revival of the Durkheimian sociology is lived, mostly in Córdoba, since 1922. Here, the readings are extended to his others works (Sociology and Pedagogy and The Elementary Forms of Religious Life) at the same time that the sociologists from Buenos Aires begin to study others French sociologists, as Maurice Halbwachs. Finally, the third period (1933-1947) involves a reinterpretation of Durkheim's doctoral thesis in Argentina creating a pre-functionalist thought in the country. This does not happen in Uruguay where even in the 1950's the sociology lectures will follow a science dissemination form and will constitute a complementary cultural knowledge for lawyers.
