This chapter presents the main ideas and constructs of the book and uses the triplet (system of principles, methodologies, set of paradigmatic questions) for describing the theories involved. In Part II (Chaps. 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7), the diversity of five theoretical approaches is presented; these approaches are compared and systematically put into a dialogue throughout the book. In Part III (Chaps. 9, 10, 11, and 12), four case studies of networking practices between these approaches show how this dialogue can take place. Chapter 8and Part IV (Chaps. 13, 14, 15, 16, and 17) provide methodological discussions and reflections on the presented networking practices.
