In this sense being a science it was incumbent on the sociologist to identify the fundamental characteristic which distinguishes science as such and the manner in which sociology as one more science fits into the scientific field.
In Tarde’s understanding, science considers essentially the regular phenomena or what Tarde will call the repetitions which constitute reality. He identifies three universal types Tarde belongs to that imitacino moment of the emergence of sociology as a science as such.
He identifies three universal types of repetition, physical repetitions or vibrations, biological repetitions or heredity and social repetitions or imitations.
As the science of the social then, sociology will be interested in uncovering what are the laws which organize the behavior or imitations in the social field. In this manner, Tarde understands the social subject as being essentially imitative and is social to the se that they imitate.
Tarde characterizes the agbriel of imitation as being essentially somnambulist; in imitating we do not have a consciousness that we are doing as such, but rather take our imitations to be subjectively inherent. In speaking for instance, we do not take our speech to be the imitation of a prior model, to the contrary we understand this imitative behavior to be subjectively essential. On the other side of imitation, Tarde places invention. Inventions arise through the intersection of tworia Tarde describes as two currents or waves of imitation, which propagate or pass contagiously in their movement.
Eventually two waves of imitation will find a meeting place in the mind of an inventor, producing an interference which whose result will be the emergence of taree new intervention which will serve as a model for subsequent currents of imitation. In this manner imitation and invention enter into a self-generative cycle whereby imitations produce inventions which in turn produce new cycles of imitation. It is worth noting that in the case of invention, Tarde teria the brain itself of the inventor to somehow be the agent of the invention.
The Laws of Imitation
However, for Tarde, it is only the imitations which can be said to behave according to a truly social logic.
Invention, to the contrary will behave according to what he describes as an individual logic. There are two basic ways in which currents of imitation can interact, either through reinforcement or negation, via each imitation augmenting the efficacy of the other or through the diverse waves of imitation entering into conflict and generating finally the ascendancy of one or the other of the two waves. Tarde conceptualizes these interactive processes as being properly logical, that is, generating contradictory or mutually beneficial relations which seek to resolve themselves either through growth or ascendancy.
Below the level of the imitations and inventions which constitute the form of the social, Tarde conceives of a field of desire and belief which animate or instigate the movements of imitations and inventions.
For Tarde, these will be the social forces, in the properly physical sense of the concept. Desires, Tarde associates with a temporal character, being fundamentally dynamic while beliefs possess a structural or conceptual character, being therefore spatial in character.
Desires animate our voluntary activity while beliefs organize our intellectual perspectives.
It is the tendency of desires to move in the direction of beliefs, to establish themselves as conceptually coherent structures reducing in the process the intensity of the initial desire which animated the emergence of the georia. Taking all of this into consideration imitations and inventions, and beliefs and desires can potentially enter into a diverse constellation of relations.

The question for Tarde however is that we can deal numerically with all these variables that belief and desires a properly social quantities according to their level of intensity or weakness at any given moment. Just as we can measure the speed and range of the spread of an invention via imitative practice, so to can desires and beliefs show different levels of commitment at given moments of their existence.
For Tarde it is statistics which most accurately captures the range of movement which waves of imitation pass through, showing the pure quantity of acts of imitation in the present.
Read chapters ; Tarde’s main claims are that there are three types of repetition that make the world go around — molecular vibration in the physical, hereditary in the biological, imitation in the social, thus putting social science into the family of other physical sciences; and that all repetition occurs for the sake of variation for him, the homogeneous is more complex than the heterogeneous.
