Bruno Latour and actor-network-theory

Filozofija I Društvo 23 (1):129-149 (2012)
This paper identifies the key moments in the development of Actor-Network-Theory through several important work by Bruno Latour. It is possible to discern a number of departures from the initial position of the author in his latter works. Actor-Network-Theory is presented through a series of “neuralgic” points inherent to and visible within the theory. The solutions which Actor-Network-Theory offers for fundamental problems of sociology, as defined by Latour, are discussed at the end of the paper
