Global Assemblages Stephen J. Collier M ax Weber began his 1920 ‘Prefatory Remarks’ to the Collected Essays in the Sociology of Religion with a famous and provocative claim: The child of modern European civilization will inevitably and justifiably approach problems of universal history from the following stand- point: What chain of circumstances led to the appearance in the West, and only in the West, of cultural phenomena which – or so at least we like to think – came to have universal significance and validity. (2002: xxviii) A series of illustrations follows: developments in history, music, science, architecture, bureaucracy, and, finally, ‘the most fateful force in our modern life’, capitalism.
