This study aims at reconstructing some fundamental paths in Durkheim’s legal sociology in order to verify whether and to what extent they have contributed to provide any reasonable explanation for social deviance, criminal behaviours and the corresponding legal remedies. To this end, Durkheim’s theories are analysed with regard to the functions of law, crime and punishment in society so that their plausibility can be evaluated in comparison with other explanatory hypotheses. This paper shows that Durkheim’s sociological analysis of crime and punishment is potentially a source of great innovativeness and significance for the comprehension of the above-mentioned social phenomena. Unfortunately, Durkheim’s analysis is somehow vitiated by a reductionist attitude that weakens its scope and makes it difficult to interact with other approaches that are capable of providing the analysis itself with fundamental contributions.
