Micro - Macro : Local - Global ? La production pratique de la localité dans la société moderne et contemporaine
Conference by Angelo Torre, resident 2019-2020 of the IAS
What are the possible limits of local history in the world history paradigm? From the critique of the equation that makes the relationship between local and global an analogy of that between micro and macro, Angelo Torre attempts to reconstruct the methodological implications of what is called the "spatial shift" and to analyze the contradictions of a metaphorical analysis of space. In particular, the rejection of explanations.
