Homo Duplex meaning and definition :


Homo duplex. Durkheim’s conception of human beings as beings of two natures, the angel and the beast, the beast being the stronger of the two. The first and “lower” part of that nature is that of “will,” an id-like nature that is focused on the individual satisfaction of all wants and desire. The other part of human nature is social in origin, the “collective conscience.” This conscience is a collective moral system, a reality separate from the individual that is made up of ideas and values.
