Latour

Last week I realised that there is a sample of the upcoming English translation of Bruno Latour’s latest book on modes of existence available on his site (though this link will take you directly to the PDF file). I went through it and it looks interesting. He really seems to have changed his views from the somewhat constructivist attitude toward a more pragmatic philosophy (he even refers to William James in this video where he explains his book, although the use of James is not rare in continental philosophy since James’ pragmatism is basically a form of social constructivism), but this turn in his thinking has been underway for years and years.
