The social sciences and humanities are now being swept by a
Tardean revival, a rediscovery and reappraisal of the work of this
truly unique thinker, for whom 'everything is a society and every
science a sociology'. Tarde is being brought forward as the
misrecognised forerunner of a post-Durkheimian era. Reclaimed from
a century of near-oblivion, his sociology has been linked to
Foucaultian microphysics of power, to Deleuze's philosophy of
difference, and most recently to the spectrum of approaches related
to Actor Network Theory. In this connection, Bruno Latour hailed
Tarde's sociology as "an alternative beginning for an alternative
social science." This volume asks what such an alternative social
science might look like.
