The recent surge of interest in nineteenth century sociologist Gabriel Tarde, fuelled in the English-speaking world primarily by second-hand discussions of his work, has produced and will continue to produce a broad demand for full English language versions of the author's key texts. The proposed volume presents three key essays by Tarde (two of them previously untranslated): Monadology and Sociology, whose outline of a relational philosophy of difference has been the starting point of Tarde's rediscovery by Gilles Deleuze and Bruno Latour; The Two Elements of Sociology, Tarde's blistering attack on Durkheimian sociology; and Belief and Desire, Tarde's prescient investigation into the potential for a quantitative study of 'inter-psychology'. Each essay will be accompanied the comments of a prominent contemporary theorist (Bruno Latour, Andrew Barry and Eduardo Viveiros de Castro) who will highlight Tarde's relevance to contemporary debates in sociology, philosophy, anthropology and beyond.
