What Is the Difference between Mechanical and Organic Solidarity?

Answer

The difference between mechanical and organic solidarity is that mechanical solidarity refers to a state of community bonding or interdependency which rests on a similarity of beliefs and values, shared activities and ties in kinship and cooperation. On the other hand organic solidarity refers to a state of independency created by the specialisation of roles and in which individuals and institutions become acutely dependent on others in a complex division of labour.
