Comparative Studies in Society and Historyv. And the bold claim that we only seemingly joined modernism stimulated my curiosity. He claims that “facts” observed in, say, laboratories, have no validity outside of that observation, and it is only through deployment of the equipment by which such observations can be made that such “facts” can be created and accepted as “universal” – by which he means, universal to the extent that they exist within the network deployed to create them.


Gerard de Vries Language: Oldenbourg Akademieverlag Translator s: Health, human rights, and the new war on the poor Berkeley: What is a hybrid in Bruno Latour’s theory?

Chapter 4 proposes Latour’s “principle of symmetry” that argues that both Nature and Society need to be explained, but that this “explanation starts from quasi-objects”—that is, we cannot use Nature and Society to explain things; rather, Nature and Society need to be explained through quasi-objects, through networks The operation of purification separates objects into categories, while translation creates new objects from the old.


Eduardo Avila Flores rated it it was amazing May 01, Latour thoroughly goes over the still-present problems that modernity introduced into Western society, and somewhat less thoroughly proposes a solution.

Latour here expresses something that really touches me and therefore contains a ground of truth. The very fact that our modernity if it really introduced a false view of reality has brought us to a point where we are capable of destroying every existence on this planet very quickly in a nuclear war, or a bit slower via climate changingthis insight on its own makes it clear that the image of the ltour arrow of time is not completely wrong.
