I’m a sociologist and I teach in Paris at the School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences.
My work is about the sociology of emotions, the sociology of capitalism, the sociology of consumer culture and the interface between all of these. I’m the author of 13 books, and perhaps most recently The End of Love.
