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 arise 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.
