There is a close connection between Gabriel Tarde's social theory and what has become known as actor network theory, especially because Tarde's two refusals : there is no difference between natural and social assemblages ; there is no difference between 'big' and 'small' assemblages in society. Through a reading of Tarde Monadologie et sociologie recently republished, the paper explores the technical innovation of Tarde and their import for actor-network theory.
