Abstract

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to argue that Joseph Schumpeter's views are influenced by the French social philosopher Gabriel Tarde who delivered a theory of social evolution based on technological change as its driving force. Design/methodology/approach - The paper investigates the affinities in Schumpeter's and Tarde's respective theoretical and methodological approaches. Findings - In this context, the paper finds striking similarities in their central visions. Practical implications - Understanding Schumpeter's theories implies a deeper acquaintance with Tarde's Originality/value - The paper concludes that several Schumpeterian insights appear to be less original.
