Le spectre de los angeles modernisation hante l. a. planète. On evaluate les sociétés en fonction de leur plus ou moins grand degré de modernisation ; on s'interroge sur ses vertus, ses risks, son degré d'universalité ou son obsolescence. Or, selected étrange, on manque d’une description anthropologique de ceux qui se désignent comme étant à l’origine de ce mouvement. Que nous est-il donc arrivé ? De quoi pouvons-nous hériter ? remark bien nous présenter face aux autres cultures ? L’auteur a mis au element un dispositif d'enquête pour repérer les valeurs multiples et contradictoires auxquelles tiennent ceux qui se disent modernes. Pour suivre le fil de l'expérience, il faut accepter qu'il y ait plusieurs régimes de vérité, plusieurs modes d'existence, plusieurs varieties de raison dont l'enquêteur dressera avec soin les stipulations de félicité et d'infélicité. En procédant ainsi, on revisite tous les domaines dont l'ensemble forme le cœur de notre vie collective : les sciences, les options, mais aussi le droit, l. a. faith, l. a. politique et, bien sûr, l'économie, los angeles plus étrange et los angeles plus ethnocentrique des productions. Ce livre est un ultimate « rapport d'enquête ». L'anthropologie philosophique qu'il esquisse donne à los angeles comparaison des cultures une autre base que celle d'un entrance universel de modernisation. Il complique l'image que les Modernes ont d'eux-mêmes, mais aussi celle que les autres peuvent avoir sur eux. L'enjeu n'est pas mince au second où les crises écologiques obligent les sociétés à repenser ce qu'elles ont en commun. Les lecteurs pourront participer à l’enquête grâce à un website net. Ils y trouveront l'apparat critique qui complète le livre, mais aussi l'occasion de comprendre autrement les arguments ou même de participer à leur transformation. Les lecteurs deviendront co-producteurs de l. a. model finale de l'ouvrage.
In this new booklet, Bruno Latour bargains solutions to questions raised in we've by no means Been smooth, a piece that interrogated the connections among nature and tradition. If no longer smooth, he requested, what have we been, and what values should still we inherit? during the last twenty-five years, Latour has constructed a examine protocol diversified from the actor-network concept with which his identify is now associated--a examine protocol that follows the different sorts of connectors that offer particular fact stipulations. those are the connectors that urged a weather scientist challenged through a captain of to entice the establishment of technology, with its military of researchers and mountains of information, instead of to "capital-S Science" as a better authority. Such modes of extension--or modes of lifestyles, Latour argues here--account for the numerous alterations among legislation, technology, politics, and different domain names of knowledge.
Though clinical wisdom corresponds to just one of many many attainable modes of lifestyles Latour describes, an unrealistic imaginative and prescient of technology has turn into the arbiter of truth and fact, seducing us into judging all values by way of a unmarried typical. Latour implores us to get well different modes of life as a way to do justice to the plurality of fact stipulations that Moderns have found all through their historical past. This systematic attempt of establishing a brand new philosophical anthropology provides a very assorted view of what Moderns were, and offers a brand new foundation for beginning diplomatic encounters with different societies at a time whilst all societies are dealing with ecological concern.

Thus the mediating third party is simply not to be found: either it turns out to be an elusive ghost (‘reality’), or it is just one further language, with 49 Kuhn introduced the practices of scientists under the rubric of paradigms in order to be able to allow for them and so get nearer to history- or ‘culture-’ free knowledge. Arguably, taking practices seriously leads either towards a position like Feyerabend’s conclusion of radical incommensurability (1975) or to the breakdown of the distinction of theory and practice itself, something long urged by Collingwood (see Boucher 1992).
If you are, say, a historian of Ancient Rome, you do 41 not become an ancient Roman any more than by working in Bali for years I become a Balinese villager. What is at issue is twofold. First it is how far I have learnt to think about matters they regard as important in the way Balinese I have worked with have thought about them. Second, it is how I rethink such thoughts in terms of current scholarly concerns and how this changes my understanding of the presuppositions involved in my own thinking.
47 I hope that it should be clear that this approach is neither positivist nor committed to an empiricist metaphysics (a wildly Rococo assemblage). As one can ask questions without knowing it, and a fortiori without knowing what questions one is asking, so one can make presuppositions without knowing it, and a fortiori without knowing what presuppositions one is making (Collingwood 1940: 26). Metaphysical inquiry involves inference, which must always be provisional. There is nothing to say that styles of logic are universal or that we can presume to understand others using our own (Chapter 3).
