Bruno Latour, actor-networks, and the critique of critical sociology

Filozofija I Društvo 18 (2):43-72 (2007)
Abstract
The paper analyzes the theoretical opus of Bruno Latour and his treatment of the concept of critique. In the first section "actor-network theory" is presented through its key notions together with Latour’s theory of modernity. In the second section various aspects of the relation between Latour and critique are discussed - first his own criticism of others , then the criticisms aimed at his work, to conclude with the political ambivalences of Latour’s attempt to develop an "acritical" social theory.
Keywords Bruno Latour, actor-network theory, critique, modernity, sociology, Pierre Bourdieu
