Seulement, cette contrainte ne résulte pas d'une machinerie plus ou moins savante, destinée à masquer aux hommes les pièges dans lesquels ils se sont pris euxmêmes. Elle est simplement due à ce que l'individu se trouve en présence d'une force qui le domine et devant laquelle il s'incline ; mais cette force est naturelle. ” It is not necessary, therefore, to resort to deception to induce the individual to submit to it absolutely of his own free will. In this chapter, Durkheim argues that it is sufficient to make him aware of his natural state of dependence and inferiority.

This is appropriate, because it is clear that the individual is not their substratum: they are grounded in society, either political society in its entirety or one of the partial groups that it includes. Moreover, it is for these ‘facts’ alone that the term is fitting, for the word 'social' has the sole meaning of designating those phenomena which fall into none of the categories of facts already constituted and labeled. In Chapter V of The Rules of Sociological Method, Durkheim (1894/2002: 73) describes some rules for the explanation of social facts and affirms that: … la contrainte la caractéristique de tout fait sociale.
