Social Anthropology

The Social After Gabriel Tarde, Reloaded

The second edition of my 2010 edited volume 'The social After Gabriel Tarde' is forthcoming with Routledge in 2016. This edition includes a revised and extended introduction, a new translation of two classic essays by Gabriel Tarde ('Monadology and Sociology' and 'The two Elements of Sociology), and to top it all, a beautiful cover illustration by graphic artist Pedro Stoichita. Download a pre-print of the preface and intro.

Here's a video of a talk I gave on Tarde at Aarhus University's Center for sociologiske Studier (CESAU).
