HAU

Another way to compose the common world

Bruno Latour

Abstract


The Inquiry into Modes of Existence is an attempt to build on the work of several anthropologists who have tried to go, as Philippe Descola said, “Beyond Nature and Culture.” Since this movement is itself one of the consequences of a reappraisal of the function of science, a new space has been opened up for an anthropology of modernity by using several yardsticks to define the reality of the beings informants say they encounter. It is those connections between science studies, anthropology and modernity that will be followed in this colloquium.

Keywords


Moderns, bifurcation of nature, collectives, interagentivity, practice, universality, multiplicity
