Jamais Fomos Modernos

De stoffelijke en technologische wereld zijn volgens hem niet te scheiden van elkaar. Maria Johnston added it Mar 04, Latour never offers alternative categories. L’esistenzialismo, ancora, crea un ulteriore terzo polo: Latour argues that these should not be viewed as two separate inventions, but rather as “one, a division of power between the two protagonists, to Hobbes, the politics and to Boyle, the sciences” 25 —the invention of “our modern world” Aug 18, kit rated it it was amazing. Hendrik Van Hout marked it as to-read Aug 16, Wir sind nie modern gewesen, vrsuch einer symmetrischen Anthropologie Wir sind nie modern gewesen, vrsuch einer symmetrischen Anthropologie.

I can’t and don’t want to do justice to this book. Actor-Network Theory – of which this book is a founding text, although Latour absolutely hated everything about the name – was developed in part in response to the problems that arose when the practice of scientists was first examined from a sociological perspective.

Oct 03, Hadrian rated it really liked it Shelves: In this book, Latour claims that the problem of incompatibility stems not just from epistemological assumptions about what “truth” is, nor from the different practices performed by researchers into “society” and “nature”.

Then that distinction did make a difference! Additionally, the existence of “quasi-objects” – neither completely social nor completely natural – can be taken into account and productively utilised.

But I’m not convinced modernism in general makes such a clear break between nature and culture as Latour claims.

Dec 12, Justin Abraham rated it liked it Shelves: It’s a short book, at around p of main text, but it’s remarkably dense, and despite the very welcome summaries and charts, will probably require careful reading and perhaps rereading. But Latour writes as if he’s in his own universe, uses quite particular jargon which he hardly explains and terminology that differs from what the rest of the intellectual world ordinarily uses eg he uses the word ‘society’ for something that almost everyone else would describe as ‘culture’ and many passages just remained too obscure for me.

Latour is attempting to radically redefine an approach to inquiry – ALL inquiry – through describing both a model for reality and a way of investigating that model which aims to resolve several unresolved issues in inquiry. The trouble of thinking: Positioning the concept of ‘modern’ against history, progress, and science.

Since the division between “society” and “nature” is not inherent but contingent, there is no need to keep them divided.

Latour here expresses something that really touches me and therefore contains a ground of truth. Indeed, some diseases are so strongly framed by socioeconomic and cultural factors that enforcement of the right to health, however critical it may be, is inadequate to restore and ensure full citizenship to affected persons.

In recent decades, it has become increasingly obvious that reducing the incidence of leprosy will require latouur than just a medical approach. To view lstour, click here.
