Actor-network theory on “networks”: Bruno Latour

Although I do not consider myself too close to the discourse of actor-network theory, I sometimes turn to its “attitude” in order to gain new and creative ideas when I find myself lost.

This video is a keynote speech from Bruno Latour on “networks” titled “Networks, societies, spheres: reflections of an actor-network theorist”. A quite different perspective on networks as it is usually used on this blog. The speech is as demanding as you’d expect from actor-network theory, yet it is worth to listen and think about the questions raised. And as always, you can expect exciting metaphors and wit along the way.
