Over the past twenty-five years, Bruno Latour has developed a research protocol different from the actor-network theory with which his name is now associateda research protocol that follows the different types of connectors that provide specific truth conditions. These are the connectors that prompt a climate scientist challenged by a captain of industry to appeal to the institution of science, with its army of researchers and mountains of data, rather than to capital-S Science as a higher authority. Such modes of extensionor modes of existence, Latour argues hereaccount for the many differences between law, science, politics, and other domains of knowledge. MagnificentAn Inquiry into Modes of Existence shows that [Latour] has lost none of his astonishing fertility as a thinker, or his skill and wit as a writerLatours main messagethat rationality is woven from more than one threadis intended not just for the academic seminar, but for the public squareand the public square today is global as never before. Jonathan Re, Times Literary Supplement Latours work makes the worldsorry, worldsinteresting again. Stephen Muecke, Los Angeles Review of Books

[An Inquiry into Modes of Existence] is not just a book; it is also a project in interactive metaphysics. In other words, a book, plus website Intrigued readers of Latours text can go online [http://www.modesofexistence.org/] and find themselves drawn into a collaborative project. Collective collaborationsome would call it crowdsourcingis rare in philosophy, but Latour, a sociologist and anthropologist by training, is used to collaboration with scientists Latours work makes the worldsorry, worldsinteresting again. And, best of all, it is a project to which you can attach yourself. -- Stephen Muecke * Los Angeles Review of Books * Magnificent An Inquiry into Modes of Existence shows that [Latour] has lost none of his astonishing fertility as a thinker, or his skill and wit as a writer Latours main messagethat rationality is woven from more than one threadis intended not just for the academic seminar, but for the public squareand the public square today is global as never before. Thanks to what Bruno Latour describes as the formidable discoveries of modernism, we have come to share a world of material interdependence and incessant communication, just at the time when the threat of climate change gives desperate pathos to our common stewardship of the planet. Latour speaks with urgency when he asks us all to set aside the script of secular modernityto stop insulting each other and learn to pluralize, apologize and ecologize. We must prepare ourselves for diplomacy, he says: we must talk to one another or die. -- Jonathan Re * Times Literary Supplement *
