Emile Durkheim (1858 - 1917) Durkheim made innumerable contributions to the young discipline of sociology, but he is most often lauded for his demonstration that even a personal act, such as suicide, is powerfully shaped by social forces.

Emile Durkheim’s theory of suicide is related to Social life in various ways and to his division of labor. It is linked to the theory of social constraint. Durkheim has established the view that there are no societies where suicide does not occur.

Jean Baudrillard by on @deviantART

Jean Baudrillard was a French sociologist, whose work is frequently associated with Postmodernism and Poststructuralism. He wrote on a diverse range of topics, but one major theme at least seems to be the way technology impacts social change.

Herbert Spencer (1820 - 1903)  Although often attributed to Charles Darwin, Herbert Spencer is the theorist who first penned "survival of the fittest." He was influenced by Darwin, but he was thinking about how societies advance by rewarding the "fittest" members. Naturally, Spencer's idea was popular among the wealthy, as it offered a purpose and justification for their exalted status.
