Abstract

This chapter articulates an account of 'pattern' as a methodological device relevant to the social sciences. 'Pattern' concerns modes of togetherness relevant to relations between unity and multiplicity as these unfold in time. A non-foundational and non-representational 'device' of pattern is developed and illustrated by way of a rethinking of Kuhn's notion of 'paradigm' and Elias' notion of 'figuration'.
