Circuits of Action

(p.198) Conclusion Circuits of Action
The Hinge

Gary Alan Fine

University of Chicago Press

The conclusion, Chapter Eight, weaves together the book’s themes and concepts, arguing for a meso-level analysis drawing on culture, interaction, and structure. These are designed to provide a valuable and distinctive perspective on civil society through the core concepts of the interaction order, group culture, circuits of action, and tiny publics. Knitting civil society together through a set of locally-based meso-structures holds promise, even if, inevitably, loose threads abound.

Keywords:   civil society, interaction order, group culture, circuits of action, tiny publics
