      Enormously interesting book.Latour attempts (imo with great success) to solve the 'problem' of the ontological status of ("social") facts by showing how facts are inextricably linked to the objects they refer to, the practices those objects are used in, etc. (That is, he solves the question how we can avoid the problem of the status of knowledge introduced by postmodernism.)He argues that the primary reason why we have such trouble grounding reality is because we want to at all costs ground it s [...]

      A great introduction to Latour's thoughts on STS. He often repeats himself though, and there are some parts that were really unnecessary. I mean, 7 pages on what metaphor is the best metaphor for the things he just said, with a table with pros and cons for every metaphor? How does that help me understand him? Just choose the right metaphor and stick with it. Repetitions make this book longer than necessary, but it's still an amazing read.

      Really tough to get the head around some of Latour but this is a very interesting book. I admire what the aim is - the bridging of positivist ideas of knowledge and a social constructionist idea of knowledge.

      Very compelling, I thought. Latour does his anthropology in a way that would have appealed to me a lot near the end of my undergraduate studies. This only makes me want to dig more into his corpus.

      Voluptas occaecati quibusdam consequuntur ea. Iste dolorem odit culpa cum commodi omnis. Aut provident corrupti mollitia dolores reprehenderit voluptatem.

      Great collection of essays expanding on many of the themes that concern Latour while demonstrating the myriad ways in which his work has been misinterpreted.

    7. David

      Good, I'm finally grasping the sense that there is no "out there" out there and that there is another way to grasp reality.
