Gabriel Tarde’s Social Theory: A Sociological Idea Analysis

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Gabriel Tarde’s social theory is receiving a considerable amount of renewed attention. While this emerging literature covers myriad domains, a detailed examination of the conceptual structure of Tarde’s thought remains to be undertaken. In this paper, I subject Tarde’s social theory to a recently developed approach within cognitive sociology---Sociological Idea Analysis. This approach is founded upon the insight that abstract theorizing is grounded in schematic patterns emerging from corporeal experience. I first summarize Tarde’s approach to social life and then highlight the different image schemas underlying his social theory. I conclude by noting how, in bringing Sociological Idea Analysis to bear upon individual thinkers, one may advance the new sociology of ideas, research on scientific/intellectual movements, and field theory.
