I recommend his discussion of tribes and tribalism highly. Maffesloi's book is one of the most important contributions to the discourse of cultural sociology to come on the scene' - Acta Sociologica.

I recommend his discussion of tribes and tribalism highly. The book will be an important starting point for any discussion of modern communities' - Sociology. French version of this book is considered to be a classic of its genre, so it can be questioned why the English version had to be waited on for so long. Maffesoli's discourse fits in the late 1980s contestations of modernity, which is now in a way old news.

French sociologist Michel Maffesoli was perhaps the first to use the term neotribalism in a scholarly context. The Time of the Tribes: The Decline of Individualism in Mass Society. Maffesoli predicted that as the culture and institutions of modernism declined, societies would embrace nostalgia and look to the organizational principles of the distant past for guidance, and that therefore the post-modern era would be the era of neotribalism.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and though it is linguistically and stylistically dense, the information and ideas contained therein make it well worth the effort to comprehend. Maffesoli's focus of inquiry is upon contingent, dynamic subcultural groups that coagulate on the basis of shared aesthetics, ethics, and customs (puissance), rather than social/economic structures (power). This focus makes this an imminently usable model when analyzing the myriad overlapping, cycling communities found as subcategories within larger industrialized societies, with the recognition that issues such as inclusion/exclusion within these groupings is in constant flux and rarely mutually exclusive. (Meaning, inclusion in one group does not necessarily mean exclusion from another.) In addition, Maffesoli's work addresses the underlying emotional, communal, and transpersonal motivations for many to become part of these groups, to align themselves within communities that provide a space wherein the "exit from the self, ex-stasis, which is part of the social logic" becomes possible (19). This idea, linked to "'ecstasy' is much more effective in smaller groups, when it becomes more perceptible to the social observer," thus Maffesoli uses the terms "tribe' and 'tribalism'" to account for "this complex entity" (19). Though subcultural practices have been viewed in a variety of ways, no other theory I've encountered takes into account these drives and desires that lead to alignment within these communities, which often have very little to do with issues such as class. For some groupings, especially those that center around or include ecstatic, transcendent practices as part of their ritual structure, a lens such as this becomes very useful in explaining and socially contextualizing these customs.

In Maffesoli's view, postmodernism is marked by a movement toward empathic, emotionally based interactions, groupings, and "social configurations that seem to go beyond individualism" (9). This idea of going beyond or outside of the individuated identity as the site for experience and knowledge is itself a rather novel offering in Western thought, one that has been too long lacking. Maffesoli's work is well worth the time, effort, and syntactic yoga required to understand it, as it offers a significant expansion/addition to the typical confines of Western ideology.

The style on the other hand is really difficult to read, even is the theory maybe on point, until the next one arrive. I wish post-modernist would stop talking to themselves

This is the second book I've read this month that's been "translated" from French. I couldn't get more than 20-30 pages into either, so it is a little misleading to say that I READ either of them. (The other, by the way, was Bourdieu's The Field of Cultural Production.)

So, here's my complaint: A proper sentence in one language should be translated into a proper sentence in another, if translated correctly. With both Bourdieu and Maffesoli, however, a great many sentences are impossible to read. Chosen, pretty randomly we find (page 6): "It is a function of this double hypothesis (shift and tension)that, true to form, I will incorporate various theoretical readings..." "Function" cannot be the right word here. The "hypothesis" (which is a rediscovery of the old mechanical v organic solidarity distinction, and not really a hypothesis in any recognizable sense) cannot dictate a certain writing style. His writing style is a way of approaching a "hypothesis," certainly not a FUNCTION of that "hypothesis," regardless of whether or not it is "true to his form."

The alleged decline of individualism is a potentially interesting topic. I know most of the literature to which he refers, and yet I found this book unreadably obscure. And this leads me to a fairly serious question: Is French somehow incompatible with English? Or, are French intellectuals deliberately blurring their arguments in clouds of bad grammar and parenthetical remarks?
