The aim of this paper is to provide a framework of analysis for three key-concepts or, better, three couples of concepts: neo-liberalism/libertarianism, globalization/governance, and network economy/networked polity. The core of the three couple of concepts is the same and it is specified under three distinct profiles: the relation between economics and politics, as to say, between state and the market, big business and big government. The paper aims to offer some kind of "toolbox" to assemble a new governing machine. Today we paradoxically find ourselves to deal with the need of re-assembling the pieces of a new Leviathan that the actor-network theory, proposed by Latour and Callon (1981), has "dismantled" three decades ago.

Keywords: Actor-network theory, globalization, governance, neoliberalism.
