The Density of Worlds

The Density of Worlds

(p.145) Eight The Density of Worlds

Iddo Tavory

University of Chicago Press

The concluding chapter crystallizes the theoretical underpinnings of the project as a theory of action, and offers some comparative vantage points. Summoning theorizes the intersection of identification, social worlds and interaction. It focuses on the ways in which people are brought into interaction and being both through their on-going projects and as they are evoked by others in interaction. By thinking inter-situationally it then provides a way to connect situations into a fabric of moments through which a social world is constructed. I then show how this way of thinking helps compare cases that seem disparate—from the dense worlds of the 19th century middle class in literature, to the urban underclass, and celebrity life.
