Share

Description

French sociologist and philosopher, Bruno Latour, is one of the most significant and creative thinkers of the last decades.

Bruno Latour: Hybrid Thoughts in a Hybrid World is the first comprehensive and accessible English-language introduction to this multi-faceted work.

The book focuses on core Latourian themes:* contribution to science studies (STS - Science, Technology & Society)* philosophical approach to the rise and fall of modernity* innovative thoughts on politics, nature, and ecology* contribution to the branch of sociology known as ANT - Actor-Network Theory. With ANT, Latour has pioneered an approach to socio-cultural analysis built on the notion that social life arises in complex networks of actants - people, things, ideas, norms, technologies, and so on - influencing each other in dynamic ways.

This book explores how Latour helps us make sense of the changing interrelations of science, technology, society, nature, and politics beyond modernity.
