Philippe STEINER, GeWoP - n°11 - Contemporary relational sociologies: a presentation based on Robinson Crusoe, , -0001

This paper studies the deployment of contemporary relational sociology in its three forms: network analysis, field theory and actor-network theory.

The paper concludes by showing how the difference in approaches translates into a difference in the way collectives are built.
