Emile Durkheim, the first to study suicide systematically, distinguished three different types, depending on what motivates the act of self-destruction: altruistic, anomic and egoistic.Durkhetm's classification system altruistic suicide based on sacrificing oneself for the good for others. The soldiers who hurts himself upon a grenade to save others, and ritual suicide, such as hara-kiri, intended to save ones family from shame, are classic examples. Anomic suicide that results, m Durkheim's analysis, from the sense that life no longer has meaning, from a sense of anomie, loneliness, isolation, and loss of contact with the norms and values of society also called norm less suicide. In Durkheim's classification system, egoistic suicide resulting from a sense of deep personal failure, a feeling that one is personally responsible for not living up to societal and personal expectation.
