This article represents an attempt to adopt a structural and interactionist approach to sociological knowledge in the analysis of social capital. The authors first describe the specific features of structural interactionism and its ties with interactionism and structural analysis. Secondly, they analyse the different definitions of social capital and notice how these share the use of the concept of the social network. Finally, they propose an idea of social capital that is based on social networks and which is a possible solution to the contrast between notions of individual and collective social capital.
