(p.1) Introduction
Bruno Latour in Pieces

Henning Schmidgen

Fordham University Press

The introduction spells out the general argument of the book. It presents Latour not as a sociologist and/or anthropologist but as an “empirical philosopher” crucially interested in the problem of tradition. It shows that, via Latour’s academic teacher André Malet, the practice of Biblical exegesis developed by Rudolf Bultmann had a major impact on the development of actor-network theory (ANT). It also points out that Latour’s writings reflect an almost continuous but somewhat half-hearted dialogue with the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari.

Keywords:   Bruno Latour, Actor-network theory (ANT), Biblical Exegesis, Rudolf Bultmann, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari
