about this item
13 essays explore Bruno Latour's legal theory from a variety of disciplinary perspectivesThis exciting new vision for legal theory combines analytical tools drawn from Latour's actor-network theory developed inScience in Action, Reassembling the Social and The Making of Law with the philosophical anthropology of the Moderns in An Inquiry into Modes of Existence to blaze a new trail in legal epistemology.Bruno Latour's writings in science and technology studies, anthropology, sociology and philosophy are well-known, but only rarely has his work in law been appreciated as a core element, and still less as a passage point for students and scholars of law. This collection demonstrates the urgency with which both of those omissions must be reconsidered.
