Durkheim and Mauss think that as organic solidarity weakens, individuals emerge

It has quite often been said that man began to conceive things by relating them to him- self. The above allows us to see more precisely what this anthropocentrism, which might better be called sociocentrism, consists of. The centre of the first schemes of nature is not the individual; it is society. It is this that is objectified, not man…

Thus the history of scientific classification is, in the last analysis, the history of the stages by which this element of social affectivity has progressively weakened, leaving more and more room for the reflective thought of individuals. But it is not the case that these remote influences which we have just studied have ceased to be felt today. They have left behind them an effect which survives and which is always present; it is the very cadre of all classification, it is the ensemble of mental habits by virtue of which we conceive things and facts in the form of co-ordinated or hierarchized groups.

Seems like D and M could have been more symmetrical or reflexive in their analysis…
