    Resumé

    Netværks-begrebet anvendes i stigende grad til forståelse af samfund, som f.eks. i analysen af sociale relationer og af virksomheder. Meget af dette arbejde har fokuseret på strukturelle aspekter af netværk i modsætning til de kulturelle aspekter. I denne artikel diskuteres et aktuelt fransk bidrag til analysen af de kulturelle aspekter ved netværk: Boltanski & Chiapello’s bog Le nouvel esprit du capitalisme (Boltanski and Chiapello 1999).
